There is an o-ring between the motor and the base plate. I would check there first. When mine started leaking from there, it had already filled the motor up with diesel fuel and ruined the brushes. Maybe you have better luck.

Expect repetative statements that don't fix the problem from AD customer service. Kinda like they are reading from a piece of paper, over, and over again.

Yes they sent me a new "updated" motor. No questions asked.

ain't that the truth. When the "updated" motor was installed and the AD2 wouldn't maintain fuel pressure they kept telling me the same thing over and over. And even argued with me that put 10 gauge wire to it wouldn't make any difference! Haha even after I told him that I already ran 10 gauge wire on the first motor and it did make a 20psi difference!! He said something must have been wrong with the first motor for it to do that lol.

Everytime I've needed a motor replaced its been overnighted. I will give them credit for the fast shipping.
