PS PUmp rebuild?

No!  Is best to isolate the leak to a specific cylinder head before pulling
the pump, as you may not have to pull the pump or at least will know just
which one needs to be opened and the O-ring replaced.  These O-rings don't
wear out, just fail because of poor installation.  Not the best static seal

Bernie, is there anything inside the pump that fails that can blow oil under
the 'star caps' thus causing them to leak?  I am just starting to pull the
pump out of the car.

Thanks Pete
