PS PUmp rebuild?

Definitely all the o-rings under the "X" caps. and the main large
o-ring inside just below the pressure relief valve. I have yet to
see the main shaft seal go, but if you have it in your kit, and access
to a good puller and a press,  you might as well change that one too.

The biggest problem I found was to open some of those caps
with the 'X' on them. Lubricate the o-rings so they don't
"squirrel" when you tighten up the caps again.
