    While doing routine maintenance the past couple of times, I've noted that my right pump is loosing oil.

    I'm not sure if it's a loose hose or a seal at this point.

    So here's the question. If it is a seal, which seal typically goes out in these pumps.

    The pump is a BDP-16A without the cooling fan.

    Thanks for the help.

    Well..... There's only two seals, The input shaft and control shaft. The input seal gets more wear.

    Especially if the pump is coming apart inside. Like a thrust brg.

    Thanks guys. I guess I'll buy the seal overhaul kit and have at it.

    I assume that I'll need some snap ring pliers too.
