    The hydro pump on my great Dane Surfer 2 is leaking. It apears the the leak is coming from the middle of the pump, where the 2 halfs of pump are put together. Is this possable? thanks Gary

    Sure can. Pull it apart and put a seal kit in it.
    Service manual can be found here: http://www.hydro-gear.com/Main/service/service-repair-manuals/docs/service-repair-manuals/pumps

    Pay attention to the condition of the valve plate. Witness mark everything.
    Keep it clean. Get ya a couple cans of spray d o u c h e and don't use rags on the internals. If the cradle bearings come loose, pop it back in place( the man. says replace housing!), and move on.
