Pretty sure mine has gone out.I am gonna order the gear kit to rebuild it. Just wondering how big of a pain in the butt is it to change this and does it require any special tools? I turn the engine over and hold down the button in the filter housing and no oil at all comes into it.Its been suggested that this is the no crank problem.
I did re check the filter housing while cranking and after about 10 seconds the housing was only about and 1/8 th full and that happened all of a sudden at the end.

yeah thats what Ive read up on. I'm in process of tearing down the LPOP to check the gears etc. With it not getting oil to the filter canister I'm gonna start there,plus its the cheapest fix if its the gears.Hope I'm right,I'm just throwing stuff at it to check it.
I got the gears out and they seem to look fine.The o ring for the gear cover looks pretty flat but seemed to be tight against the case.There was some oil that looked burnt on the crankshaft end and was inside the harmonic balancer. Theres a lot of oil on the main case but that could have come from the HPOP leak I had but was fixed. Is the main pump just the gears on the crankshaft or is it inside the front cover?
Also can I put the new gears I have back in and the cover and then connect the batteries and spin it over to see if I have oil in the canister without hurting anything? Thanks guys
I did go recheck that front gear cover.There seems to me some minor scarring on that cover but its not bad to me.Shoould/could this be a problem and need replaced?
