HPOP o-ring leak question

ive already ordered my oring kit and its on the way, my question is do I let disconnect the line/fitting and just let the oil drain so I can clean the threads and if so once shes all put back together do I just top off the hpop resevoir. Ive head of people replacing the oring taking it for a ride and then they shut it off and it doesnt start again. andy help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Just unthread the line from the HPOP, stick a new Oring on there, let the oil drain out of the hose while you are doing it. Then snug it down with a wrench. You probably won't see your reservoir go down at all. It will just take a couple good 20-30 second cranks to get her going.

If you pull your HPOP, then yes, you will need to top it off.

I didn't use any locktight. Part of me doesn't like to use it, I have seen it take the threads right out of a pump before.

Just be real careful when tightening the hose fitting back into the pump. Remember the pump is aluminum and the fitting is stainless steel. I learned the hard way. I must have slightly overtightened it or it was weak from previous owner and when I took it out for a drive it blew the hose, fitting, and the threads right out the side of the pump. So I had to buy a new pump, my cheap o-ring fix wound up costing me close to a grand.
