PLUNGERS RUNNING SIDEWAYS

Check for undue stress on plungers

This is a term used to describe why oil seals fail prematurely.  

A pump with too much clearance in the connecting rod and crankshaft connection may not push the plunger in a straight line.  A bent connecting rod will have the same effect on the plungers. 

As a result the connecting rods will run in a circular motion, wearing the seals out prematurely.  This condition can have a serious effect on the plungers and plunger packings as well.  

Looks for sloppy fitting connecting rods and put a straight edge on the connecting rod to diagnose this problem. 

 SOME OF THESE OPERATIONS CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT TRAINING IN THESE PROCEDURES, WE RECOMMEND YOU SEEK ASSISTANCE FROM A 
QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN
