    Yet another SC failure/warranty issue

    OK so some of you may know Brian (Rustysearustydoo) and know he's had a run of bad luck lately. I started a nice 3 ski metal washer install a week or so ago and found that his clutch had failed and in the process ate the ceramic. I checked the front pump myself to find out if i had accidentally broke a washer pulling the SC or if it had gone on it's own. When i pulled the front oil pump i could clearly see particles of ceramic in the screen and even smashed a few small grains to be sure of what they were. The pump shows the expected pitting and scratches. After reassembling everything Brian took it to the dealership and explained to them that he had reason to belive the SC let go. A few days later they got back to him saying that it was the SC clutch( you don't say) and they would let him know as soon as possible how the warranty would be carried out. Most recently they've called him explaining that the SC will be rebuilt but no guarantee that the engine would be dismantled, cleaned, and the pumps rebuilt. They said they would do 2 oil changes on it to clean it out. Like thats going to do a lot. I'm sure Brian will speak up after he gets off of work but i want to know, should he push this ? I mean this is after all the band aid that we've all heard about. How is a dealer going to look a man in the face who knows what SHOULD be done and tell him sorry pal we can't do anything more for your $13,000 baby? I think it's total BS. I have a few pics here of the front pump. They aren't the greatest quality but tell me if you think they're toast or if they'd be alright as long as the ceramic was thoroughly cleaned out. Not that anyone should settle for some mickey mouse sh!t like that.

    Thats not that bad. Some circular scoring of the oil pump cover and housing is normal. It's the pitting of the rotor that i don't like

    He has a fair ammount of pittin. Not too bad since i think the clutch let go in the last 1/4 mile on the way back to the dock. The big point here is this should be fixed and the pitting should not be considered normal wear and tear. If this was something that had to be fixed out of pocket how much would it cost to rebuild both pumps? Lets see how Pete's Cycle of Severna Park, MD takes care of this. Sorry i had to give them some recognition.
