RXP shaft and carbon ring question
Installed the SFR bellows band today, and put everything back the way it came out,
put the socket in the pump and was able to push the drive shaft in just enough to put the C clip on in front of the hat piece
now I pulled the pump put the hose clamps on the bellows, put the pump back on less the socket,
How does the drive shaft move rearward to seal the C-clip?
Or do I pull it back into place? or it will go back on its own?

Should move back on its own. Did u put any grease or oil on the orings?

Sounds like he destroyed the drive shaft bumper on the end of the shaft
when you use a socket to compress the bumper it can destroys it and you must replace it. also when you remove the drive shaft it can cuts all 4 o- rings
I seem to allways have bad luck re-using o-rings
the service manual says to just push back the bellows to remove the c clip

I just got it to slip back into place, I used some Parker O ring lube on all the o-rings, it just needed a little jiggling,

We have a baseball tournament this weekend, so I will have to test ride it after work one day this week, but hopefully I have the cavitation issues ironed out,
see you all on Friday,

That is what I was wondering, but sometimes people chime in who really don't know crap, you just have to weed out the flakes,
