replacing front seal on hydro pump on grasshopper

hey new here but I have a problem here.....the hydro pump on the left side of my grasshopper 227 mower is leaking at the front behind the fan blade. I would like to know is there a special way to remove the pump, also is there any links on how to remove pump?.... i noticed there is a roller in between 2 slides does the pump just slide up once i remove all the bolts and hoses?....thanks in advance

Easiest way is to call a mechanic at the dealer for info or find a parts diagram and study it for awhile and see how its put together.

Ya my dealer I spent a lot of time talking to dealers. Find a site where you can order gh parts and they will have diagrams you can look at. Look at the pump assembly and the frame and you have a good idea. My 721d is a 8 hour job to pull it out tear it all apart and put it all in. The seal will be easy its the pulling it out part that's hard.

ok this looks straight forward. Take you fan blade off, then undo the hoses, then the 2 bolts on the plate and it should be free. Oh and some linkage.
