Pump suction tube install on 3388


Recommended Posts

Hi!  I am installing the piston to gear pump conversion kit on my 3388.  I am trying to install the new pump suction tube into the gear pump.  However I am having difficulty removing the filter cartridge retainer to gain access to the tube from the filter housing side.  Any advice?  I’m trying to not tear up anything more than I have!   Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Maybe a slide hammer in the hole to pop it out? I just had to do that on mine and the plate just came out without much issue. I just had the outer cover off that the suction hose connect too. Tipped the steel plate side ways and had enough room to work the suction tube around.

Question for you. Do you still have the piston pump and is the compensatory valve on the side of the pump good? I am looking for that valve as the spool inside of mine broke where one of the o'rings goes. Pretty sure the pump itself is still good. Would be interested in talking to you about it if you think it is good. Dennis

I use a very small nailbar and pry around the entire radius of the filter retainer it will eventually pop out
