Re: Mudd Pump


I have an old pump out in my shop somewhere. I'll see if I can take it apart.

I will educate a guess though and say lots of WD-40 and patience, or a propane torch and no patience.

Yep, tried those along with a vise and BFH. "Easy Pumps" aren't too easy if ya don't take them apart often enough.
