    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.

    [​IMG] 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.
