    Mine failed at 129 hours this past Saturday. '07 RXP.

    Found most of the washer in the suction oil pump screen. Pulling the driveshaft now so I can inspect the PTO area.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Not trying to be smart axx, but hours don't matter on ceramic washers.
    If you do nothing more on any SC with ceramic washers on 4 tech, "replace the
    washers" or you will be another thread asking "what do I do next"

    I don't fill sorry for any (non newbie) GH members that have to go thru this Mis fortune.
    Its not "if" but "when"?

    I do fill sorry for those that come to this forum due to this issue and did Not know better.


    So anyone reading this issue for the first time. Spend the money now and replace the ceramics or pay big latter.


    This was not directed at you but to all those that have doubts about replacing there ceramic washers.

    I know I sound like a jerk but hopefully I can save a motor or two.
