DANGER
Extra care must be taken in repair of pumps with mechanical
seals. Read and follow all special information supplied with
pump.
BEFORE OPENING ANY VIKING PUMP LIQUID
CHAMBER (PUMPING CHAMBER, RESERVOIR,
RELIEF VALVE ADJUSTING CAP FITTING ETC.)
BE SURE:
MAINTENANCE
1. THAT ANY PRESSURE IN CHAMBER HAS
BEEN COMPLETELY VENTED THROUGH
SUCTION OR DISCHARGE LINES OR
OTHER APPROPRIATE OPENINGS OR
CONNECTIONS.
Series 125 and 4125 pumps are designed for long, troublefree service life under a wide variety of application conditions
with a minimum of maintenance. The points listed below will
help provide long service life.
LUBRICATION: External lubrication must be applied slowly
with a hand gun to all lubrication fittings every 500 hours of
operation with multi-purpose grease, NLGI #2. Do not overgrease. Applications involving very high or low temperatures
will require other types of lubrication. Refer to Engineering
Service Bulletin ESB-515. Consult factory with specific
lubrication questions.
2. THAT THE DRIVING MEANS (MOTOR,
TURBINE, ENGINE, ETC.) HAS BEEN
“LOCKED
OUT”
OR
MADE
NONOPERATIONAL SO THAT IT CANNOT BE
STARTED WHILE WORK IS BEING DONE
ON PUMP.
PACKING ADJUSTMENT: New packed pumps require initial
packing adjustment to control leakage as packing ‘runs in”.
Make initial adjustments carefully and do not over-tighten
packing gland. After initial adjustment, inspection will reveal
need for packing gland adjustment or packing replacement.
Refer to instructions under Disassembly, page 4, and
Assembly, page 4, regarding repacking pump.
3. THAT YOU KNOW WHAT LIQUID THE PUMP
HAS
BEEN
HAN DLING
AND
THE
PRECAUTIONS NECESSARY TO SAFELY
HANDLE THE LIQUID. OBTAIN A MATERIAL
SAFETY DATA SHEET (MSDS) FOR THE
LIQUID TO BE SURE THESE PRECAUTIONS
ARE UNDERSTOOD.
CLEANING PUMP: Keep pump as clean as possible. This
will facilitate inspection, adjustment and repair work and help
prevent overlooking a dirt covered grease fitting.
FAILURE
TO
FOLLOW
ABOVE
LISTED
PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES MAY RESULT IN
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
STORAGE: If pump is to be stored, or not used for six
months or more, pump must be drained and a light coat of
non-detergent SAE 30 weight oil must be applied to all
internal pump parts. Lubricate fittings and apply grease to
pump shaft extension. Viking suggests rotating pump shaft
by hand one complete revolution every 30 days to circulate
the oil.
ROTATION: Viking pumps operate equally well in a
clockwise or counterclockwise rotation. Shaft rotation
determines which port is suction and which is discharge. Port
in area where pumping elements (gear teeth) come out of
mesh is suction port.
SUGGESTED REPAIR TOOLS: The following tools must be
available to properly repair Series 125 and 4125 pumps.
These tools are in addition to standard mechanics’ tools such
as open end wrenches, pliers, screw drivers, etc. Most of the
items can be obtained from an industrial supply house.
PRESSURE RELIEF VALVES:
1. Viking pumps are positive displacement pumps and must
be provided with some sort of pressure protection. This
may be a relief valve mounted directly on the pump, an
inline pressure relief valve, a torque limiting device or a
rupture disk.
1. Soft Headed hammer
2. AlIen wrenches (some mechanical seals and set collars)
2. There are relief valve options available on those pump
models designed to accept a relief valve. Options may
include a return to tank relief valve and a jacketed relief
valve. Pumps equipped with a jacketed head plate are
generally not available with a relief valve.
3. Packing hooks, flexible (packed pumps)
Small for 0.25 inch and 0.31 inch cross section packing
Large for 0.38 inch and up cross section packing
4. Mechanical seal installation sleeve
Viking Part No. 2-751-001-900 for 0.75 inch seal; G4125
Viking Part No. 2-751-002-900 for 1.12 inch seal;
H &HL4125
Viking Part No. 2-751-003-900 for 1.44 inch seal;
AK - LL4 125
3. If pump rotation is reversed during operation, pressure
protection must be provided on both sides of pump.
4. Relief valve adjusting screw cap must always point
towards suction side of pump. If pump rotation is
reversed, remove pressure relief valve and turn end for
end. Refer to Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4.
5. Bearing locknut spanner wrench
(Source: #471 J. H. Williams & Co. or equal)

The seal used in this pump is simple to install and good
performance will result if care is taken during installation.
The principle of the mechanical seal is contact between the
rotary and stationary members. These parts are lapped to a
high finish and their sealing effectiveness depends on
complete contact.
1. Mark head and casing before disassembly to insure
proper reassembly. The idler pin, which is offset in pump
head, must be positioned toward and equal distance
between port connections to allow for proper flow of liquid
through pump.
Viking furnishes a number of heavy-duty pumps with special
mechanical seals installed in the packing end of the pump.
These special seals are not discussed in TSM141.1.
Information is available by contacting the factory. When
requesting special seal information, be sure to give pump
model number and serial number.
Remove head from pump. Do not allow idler to fall from
idler pin. Tilt top of head back when removing to prevent
this. Avoid damaging head gasket. If pump is furnished
with pressure relief valve, it need not be removed from
head or disassembled at this point. Refer to Pressure
Relief Valve Instructions, page
1. Install bracket bushing. If bracket bushing has a

Once rotating portion of mechanical seal is installed on rotor
shaft, it is necessary to assemble parts as quickly as
possible to insure that seal does not stick to shaft in wrong
axial position. The seal should be expected to stick to the
shaft after several minutes setting time.
Never touch sealing faces with anything except clean hands
or clean cloth. Minute particles can scratch the seal faces
and cause leakage.

INSTALLATION OF CARBON GRAPHITE
BUSHINGS
When installing carbon graphite bushings, extreme care
must be taken to prevent breaking. Carbon graphite is a
brittle material and easily cracked. If cracked, the bushing
will quickly disintegrate. Using a lubricant and adding a
chamfer on the bushing and the mating part will help in
installation. The additional pr ecautions listed below must
be followed for proper installation:
THRUST BEARING ADJUSTMENT
1. Loosen setscrews over outer and inner end caps. Two
for G, H and HL size pumps, four for all other sizes.
2. Turn inner end cap clockwise, viewed from shaft end,
until it projects slightly from bracket exposing
approximately three threads.
1. A press must be used for installation.
3. Turn outer end cap clockwise until rotor is tight against
head and rotor shaft cannot be turned.
2. Be certain bushing is started straight.
3. Do not stop pressing operation until bushing is in
proper position. starting and stopping will result in a
cracked bushing.
4. Make a reference mark on bracket end, opposite a notch
on outer end cap. There are no notches on G size pump.
Back off outer end cap required number of notches.
Refer to Figure 16.
4. Check bushing for cracks after installation.
Each 0.25 inch travel on circumference of end cap is
equivalent to approximately .002 inch end clearance for
G size pump and .0015 inch for all other sizes.
Carbon graphite bushings with extra interference fits are
frequently furnished for high temperature operation.
These bushings must be installed by a shrink fit.
5. End clearances set per Step 4 are adequate for
viscosities up to 750 SSU (SAE2O lube oil at room
temperature). Higher viscosity liquids require additional
end clearances.
1. Heat bracket or idler to 750 °F.
2. Install cool bushings with a press.
3. If facilities are not available to reach 750 °F.
temperature, it is possible to install with 450 °F.
temperature; however, the lower the temperature, the
greater the possibility of cracking bushing.
As a general guideline, for viscosities between 750 and
7500 SSU (heavier lube oils) double the amount of end
clearance indicated in Step 4; for viscosities between
Consult factory with specific questions on high
temperature applications. Refer to Engineering Service
Bulletin ESB-3.
