Internal ram packing problem. Needs a viagra fix. Might want to get on it soon as the snow isn't far away. Course you could have done it at then end of the season but that would be no fun.

An E-60 Basic Seal Kit is all you need. Change the packing and all the other seals on the way in to change the packing and you will be all set.

Glad you got it done. Hopefully I can find the time to edit the full 8 hour rebuild video and get it on DVD. It has been over a year, and still no time.

Jerre yes the lift seals was blown in about 3 or 4 peices and full of gunk. Thanks for the help on this.
I got it last summer and just drained the fluid and put it to use.

And. yes I have been to alot of places but liked none as well as home sweet home. I live about 60 miles south of morantown wv where WVU is but alot closer to the MTNS.it is a good beautiful state.

Sounds like I have the same issue, blade goes down while driving (not good), particularly since this is my spare pump. My E47 is leaking from the bottom of the motor after having been rebuilt (?) this summer. I guess I should have done it myself. Any idea on quick fix?
Will you ship to Canada Chuck?
Oh. . . . . . and hi y'all.I just don't get here often enough!!!

There is a seal on the pump shaft that is leaking , pull the motor off and you will see the pump shaft sticking up.That is where your seal is, there are two diff sizes and smith bros can fix you up.I think they are under 5 bucks but getting the old one out and the new one in is tricky.

Thanks wva, I really would like to get this one fixed soon. The mechanical part isn't the problem so much as knowing the specific problem to expect and address. I hope Chuck ships, since our "Meyer" dealer seems to take the week between Christmas and New Years off. I'm sure that when I order it they will "have to get it in".
Thanks caterpillar, I've taken the motor off and can see the shaft, what is the method for removal??
This E47 was "rebuilt" by the above supplier this summer so that I wouldn't have problems this year!!!! When I took the motor off,the reservoir showed all kinds of gunk. Nothing was done here I'm sure! Do I remove the bottom as well? I could find nothing on Chuck's site, but I'm old so lots of things escape me.

On the E47 there is a small oil seal on the pump shaft under the motor it removes like any other grease seal and you drive the new one in.
The other pump that is on the truck now has more then likley blown the lower o ring at the bottom of the lift cylinder dont forget a new packing nut and the o ring under the brass part. All you really need is a basic seal kit to fix both pumps hope it helps

I've removed bearings by taping the back side, do I remove the bottom to tap this out,or pull it out by the exposed shaft? (Hope I'm not sounding too ignorant )

Its actually in the top of the pump housing around the pump shaft usally the bottom of the pump has to come off so you can get the seal out and you shouldnt have had to remove any bearings

There are four bolts on the bottom of the pump, when you pull that apart you will see the gears which is the pump itself.Pull the gears out and then you can get to the seal.The gear are on the shaft's so it's pretty simple.When you pull the four bolt's off the bottom plate there is a o-ring that goes in between there.Meyer does not sell a replacement o-ring so try to reuse that one if not i found one at John Deere that fits perfect i don't have the part num on me but i can get it for you if you need it.

Henry, we ship to Canada every day. Click on the Smith Brothers Plow Parts banner up top.

We use a normal seal puller and pluck the pump shaft seal out from the top on E-47's. Be careful not to scratch the bore. I made a tool to spin the pump shaft using a drill, and we use a piece of scuff pad to polish the shaft a little before putting in the new seal. Most of the replacement pump shaft seals have a green silicone coating on them so they seal when installing. IF the one you get does not have the green coating, put a thin smear of RTV silicone around the outside of the seal before you put it in. The Pump Shaft Seal comes in the E-60 Basic Seal Kit, the Pump Shaft Seal does not come in the E-47 Basic Seal KIt, it comes in the E-47 Master Seal Kit, or you can buy it seperately.

Thanks Chuck, I just ordered the suggested parts. I pulled the bottom off and pulled the motor shaft down and the shaft seal just fell out. Now I need to know one thing when putting it back together again, do all the parts fit back together with the "rings" all facing the same way? When taking it apart the bottom seal (ring) was not facing the same way as the two above it. I hope that makes sense.
