86 series hitch pump leak

Missouri Mule

Recommended Posts

Neighbor picked up a 986 the other day. Previous owner had hitch pump replaced recently. It works as it should but the 4 bolts that hold it to the cover all leak. Arent there copper washers there?? Or supposed to be anyway? Could a guy remove one at a time and check to see if they forgot them or replace them. Seems to leak bad. Only had one apart once and im not sure. Thanks

Should have copper washers. Have also had to silicone the bolts a little. Don't over torque them as the pump is aluminum. You can do them one at a time but need to stick a plug in the hole when you remove a bolt, makes a little mess.
