Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. Is it making any noise or grinding ? Are the plates snapping in half etc ?

Hi John , no it was not making any noise, it worked properly both times for around 5 hours and the plates snapped in the middle where the screw comes. I attached a photo to make it more clear for you. AS I said in previous email I exchanged only one piston,( not all three of them) ,and when the old wobble plate snapped, I bought a new one and replaced it but it snapped as well after around 5 hours of working at the same spot. (See photo attached). Thank you

Hi Neal,

I'm trying to pull a diagaram of your pump, my concern is the other pistons that weren't replaced . Something put enough pressure on the swash plates to break them. Do the other pistons move freely etc
