EHCS Pump Drive Gear
Well there is always a first time. Out of all the units I have rebuilt I have never run across a broken drive gear. Symptoms were a gawd awful noise when running the unit. Thought it was the motor bearing as I could not remove the armature from the housing. New motor sounded the same. I took the pump off and it sounded the same. Upon a closer inspection of the drive gear/shaft I found a split tooth that had a repair attempt with a crappy glue. It probably worked for awhile but eventually the glue gave up.
Solution was to grind out the old repair then slot the tooth fracture line for proper glue fill. Then added JB Weld to the gear pocket and hold for diameter with a hose clamp. It will be 24 hours before I know if it will work. Stay tuned.
Should have pulled the gear from the spare body before I sent it to Ari a while back, just never thought I would need one.
