911! HPOP on a 7.3- All hands on deck!
Ok, I thought I had an issue with the IPR or HPOP. Turns out, the 17* I bought blew the oring between the line fitting and the HPOP.
But before I knew that, I got a new IPR and HPOP and started tearing it down today. I have everything apart except the 18mm bolt that holds the gear to the pump. When I loosen the bolt, the bolt just turns the pump backwards.
I spoke with Marc today and he suggested that I loosen the rear bolts and pry the pump back a bit to put pressure on the pump. That didn't work. My question is this;
Is there a way to lock up the HPOP to remove the bolt??????
I tried replacing the oring and putting everything back together, but even the new oring just blew out. It seems this pump as seen better days, I think the fitting is stripped.
I've never had this problem before and no one else has seen this either. I need to get the truck running ASAP.
