I recently bought an early 70's Case 450 with the 188 diesel. It's mostly in good shape but the charge pump is losing its prime within a day or two when the machine doesn't sit downhill. The previous owner was aware and just normally parked it downhill.
Based on my searching and the older threads I have read here in this forum (and elsewhere), it appears that rebuilding/replacing the charge pump would be the fix.
However, among all the suggestions from people to replace the seal, I haven't seen any information about where to get one or what type it is. Where is everyone getting the rebuild kit/shaft seal from? I'd rather not spend $300 on a new pump if I can just replace the seals. I have yet to pull the pump to look at the shaft seal to avoid potentially making it worse by further damaging the seal so I'm not sure if it is a widely available type or not.
