Posted Thu Nov 14, 2013, 12:47pm Subject: Re: Report back on the used Oscar
Disassembled, cleaned and reassembled the 3 way valve.
I failed at the pump rebuild. The motor that came on the Oscar does not have screws to remove the main cylinder from the center of the pump. I could only remove a stopper spring and rubber stop. The rest is stamped closed. I did get a chance to pump some water though. What I saw was extreme fluctuation in pressure. I am hoping with a new pump and the new valve I will have a working oscar.
This is so frustrating. I still believe this this was a barley used Oscar. I feel like this is damage from sitting. I keep cleaning everything but its already clean.
Anything else I can pull apart and put back together as I wait haha? And... would help my cause to get this running.
