b. Use only an approved container to hold or store gasoline.
Never store gasoline in familiar containers such as milk
containers or soda pop bottles.
c. Store gasoline in a cool location, out of the reach of children.
Never store gasoline near heat or an open flame.
d. Provide a fire extinguisher nearby when working with
gasoline. Be sure extinguisher is in operating condition –
check the pressure gauge of indicator. Be familiar with its
proper use. Consult local fire department for the correct type
of extinguisher for your application. Extinguishers rated ABC
by the National Fire Protection Association are appropriate for
most applications.
e. Provide positive shut-off valves on all permanent fuel
supplies. Fuel lines must be of steel piping, adequately
secured, and free from leaks.
f.
Provide adequate ventilation, and clean up any spills when
handling or pumping flammable liquids.
g. POSITIVELY NO SMOKING!

Troubleshooting Chart
Symptom
Pump does not prime
Possible Cause(s)
1. Suction line above liquid
Corrective Action
1. Ensure that open end of suction line remains
completely below surface of liquid
NOTE: For stubborn liquids, try filling
pump through discharge port before
operation. A filled casing primes
quickly.
2. Pump speed too slow
2. Operate pump handle rapidly until pump primes
(up to 30 cycles)
3. Unsuitable suction line
3. Pumps are intended for use with suction line
supplied. Longer or collapsible suction line may
prohibit priming. Use short length rigid line similar in
diameter to suction port. (Maximum pump height
bove l
6”)
4. Clean suction line and/or filter (where applicable)
5. Verify that all suction line connections are sealed
tightly. Use Teflon® tape or appropriate sealant if
necessary
4. Clogged suction line and/or filter
5. Suction line air leakage
Handle difficult or impossible to move
6. Cover air leakage
6. Inspect pump cover(s) for looseness and
damaged or slipped gaskets. Replace damaged
gaskets and snug-up cover(s)
7. Shaft air leakage
7. Verify shaft seal is properly seated and in good
condition. Replace seal if worn or damaged
8. Housing air leakage
8. Inspect entire pump housing, cover(s), and shaft
for cracks. Replace damaged parts
9. Shifted or worn rotor
9. Loosen all cover bolts. View pump from side with
suction/discharge ports in vertical position and on
right hand side. Reposition rotor by grasping covers
n sl ng tow r s o’clock os t on. Do not se
excessive force. Hold in position and re-tighten
cover bolts
10. Damaged/worn pump parts
10. Remove pump cover and inspect for broken
pieces. Components should have smooth finish, no
large grooves or voids. Replace damaged parts.

which is designed to prevent back-flow. If excessive
leakage past valve is found, replace valve (some
leakage is normal)
1. Pump has not been used for some time
1. Remove pump cover and inspect for crystallized,
solidified, or gummy remains. Clean parts. To
prevent future occurrences, flush pump with
appropriate solvent after pumping problem liquid
2. Damaged/worn pump parts
2. Remove pump cover and inspect internal parts.
Components should have smooth finish, no large
grooves or voids. Replace damaged parts
3. Corroded pump parts
3. Remove pump cover and inspect for corrosion.
Clean parts and use pump only for liquids which are
compatible with pump component materials
4. Damaged/worn gear drive parts
4. a) Remove oil plug from gear case and verify oil
level is correct, top-up if necessary. See
“M nten nce” for ro er l b r c nt
b) If pump is still difficult to turn, drain gear oil and
inspect oil for contaminants indicating damaged
gears. Replace damaged parts
