Tips When Approaching A Hydraulic Pump Rebuild

There are all kinds of hydraulic pumps today, but almost every single one is designed to convert energy for a particular application. If you have one that needs to be rebuilt, utilize these tips for a smoother process all around.

Review Common Mistakes Made

So that you have a good idea of what hurdles to avoid early on in the rebuild, go through common mistakes made with hydraulic pump rebuilds. These can typically include using below-standard parts, rushing the rebuild, or replacing parts that are still in good shape.

There are other possible complications that could show up depending on which type of hydraulic pump you're working on and trying to restore. Become familiar with all of them before starting the process and then you can see better results while saving a bunch of time. 

See What Repairs Are Possible 

In a hydraulic pump rebuild, some major parts may have to be replaced like the main valve, hose, or motor. However, you want to see if these major parts can be repaired first before you go through with replacing them because that often will bring about a more cost-effective rebuild.

Some parts may just need a little bit of touching up, even if that means working with a professional repair company. Then you can replace parts that truly are beyond repair, feeling good you did everything in your power to make this pump rebuild as affordable as possible. 

Put New Parts Into Position Correctly

Once you take the hydraulic pump apart and really see what parts need to be replaced for the rebuild to be a success, make sure you take the new part installation process seriously.

Every new part purchased needs to be set up properly in its designated position for this rebuild to have been worth your time and the money you put into it.

Look over ideal placement and make sure new parts are set up like how they were when the hydraulic pump was initially made. You then won't have to deal with as many performance issues later on in the pump's life cycle. 

Rebuilding a hydraulic pump may be needed at some point, and if you're approaching it around your worksite, do your best to line things up right to where you are not forced out of your element or have to make expensive decisions. The strategy will pay off in a smoother hydraulic pump rebuild.
