I got a squeal in my pump and I've got my new one coming today, but I can't get the reservoir separated from the pump. Is there something I'm missing? I don't see anything holding it on.

Since you didn't provide pics, I went and looked at pics from RockAuto.


It looks like there are bolts? that hold it in. Or is that where the return line goes. If not, it's held in by an o-ring.

All bolts are removed. Both lines are removed. I also looked at the diagrams.

How many o-rings came with your kit?

Should be one for the return fitting and one for the bottle. Two washers for the pressure line.

I found it. There were two additional bolts I missed that were caked in mud/other stuff. Also, turns out that the reservoir extends all the way down to the bottom of the pump, rather than just sitting on top like I thought it did.
