Thread: Oil in pump sight glass, what's going on? Help

  1. #1

    Default Oil & water in pump sight glass, what's going on? Help

    It looks there is oil and water in my pump sight glass,(TSF 2021) what's going on?
    What do I do? From what I can find out it looks like the seals and packing have failed. How do I repair it? How much will it cost?
    Do I have to take it to a shop. I've never taken a pump apart before. How much does a new pump cost?

    First off count to ten and relax....... Is your pressure ok? Have you drained the oil and added new oil? If it is seals its about $100 for the kit. I hope this helps till you can call a repair shop.

    Do I have to use the GP 100 oil?
    I don't know if I can find it around here.

    Sometimes that can be caused by a bad oring on the cap that has allowed condensation to form inside. Change the oil first. It's a cheap test.

    I agree take a breath. You should always have a seal kit for the pumps you have and oil. It is not hard to replace some of the seals, take the head off and look at them some times it is only 1 or 2.

    If you have it all apart, why not replace all of them?

    If they are not in bad shape why replace them. It takes 10 minutes to take everything off and the seals are not cheap. I do them all the time, if you do not have many problems and it is a once a year thing then maybe you should do all of them but if they look good to me why not let them go on.
