Got it off there and pump out.
More pics. I removed the clutch using a crows foot.
You may get away with a thorough cleaning and soldering up all the undesired holes in the pump. First of all, get rid of all remaining sap crap... any good parts cleaner should work.
You think solder will stick? I was thinking jb weld. Only by the adjustment screw is it eaten all the way through. The rest looks worse in pictures. No idea how they remove the screw. I guess something goes bad on those? Everything else looks fine to me.
JB Weld should work as well, but you need to get the surfaces absolutely oil-free... not an easy task. One more "cheat" to consider might be wrapping the worst parts with some sort of tape over oil-resistant liquid sealant and then letting the mess cure thoroughly. Just some ideas...
...in the worst case you can always beg for a used pump there should be some laying around...
Haha. Theres one on ebay but looks pretty bad. Like $16.
I put some jb weld on it after using brake clean
I also washed it in kitchen sink with hot water and palmolive.
This is how the saw looks after alot of cleaning and gas and compressed air.
The jb weld seems to have worked good. Just needs 24hrs to cure.
I used original formula which has higher heat rating but slower to set and cure
No I'm gunna park it on the shelf. Unless I need it I'm not using it no more.
I would use it before it melts away ...
No, seriously, I think some live action with a lot of bar oil on the affected area will help preserve it.
Anyhow, nice JB Weld repair on the pump
I'll fire it up after 24hrs has passed.
Its putting out alot more oil now. Heres a short clip. I'm warming up the saw now.
Now you just have to try it in wood to make sure the oil gets to the chain&bar as needed...
Yeah that's true. And will it hold up too. I was looking at my old dolmar 111 and it sure doesnt look bad at all. But it came from Washington state. I wonder if the quality on the newer pumps is just bad?
Back to the makita. I have to turn the pile down now! Too much oil. Heres some pics of the much older dolmar 111
