    First time I rebuilt my d-30 I got milk in my oil (water). I took it apart again and cleaned the diaphrams off real good and the sealing surfaces and payed real close attention to the sealing surfaces when I put it back together. Mark
  3. If it was other than the obsolete D19 I could tell you, but that pump is so different then the ones I use.

    Most likey you didn't get the diaphragms seated right, or did not get all the fluid out from before.

    When I rebuilt my pumps, I found oil coming out but stopped after a few minutes and never happened again.

    Fill with a hose attached to the BOTTOM DRAIN HOLE. Allow the site tube on top to act as the vent. This is also how lower ends are filled on outboard motors and many bull-gear & final drive transmissions. Air is then allowed to escape upward so the bubbles don't slow the filling process.

    An empty 90wt bottle (REFILLED WITH 30WT & RE-LABELED) is perfect after it's been customized with a length of hose. Check a good auto parts store for the parts. Should be less than $5.00.

    For shops that do a lot of work like this, inexpensive manual fluid transfer pumps are available. Usually less than $40.00. Then add the appropriate fitting.

    Hope this helps.
