Worn drive splines
Wearing of the shaft splines is caused by lack of engine or transmission oil through the pump drive passages. Refer to Illustration 62.Do no use again

Grooves in the seal area which can be felt with a fingernail
(J) Shoulder radiusUse Again - After the seal area is salvaged according to the correct procedure. Refer to the "Procedure to Salvage Shaft Seal Area" section in this document.Procedure to Salvage Shaft Seal Area
Grooves in the seal area which can be felt with a fingernail can be removed to make the part usable again. Refer to Illustration 64.Note: Follow the metal spray manufacturer directions carefully in the application of metal spray to the shaft seal area.The salvage procedure is as follows:
Measure the shaft outside diameter at the seal area and at the shoulder radius (J) if present. Make a note of each dimension.
Worn or damaged surfaces designated as salvageable by chrome plating can also be salvaged by a metal spray process. Metal spray is an acceptable method of restoring a surface to the original size. Each step in the procedure is critical in achieving the desired coating bond and the surface finish. See Reuse and Salvage Guideline, SEBF9236, "Fundamentals of High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) Spray for Reconditioning Components".
Grind the seal area to the diameter which was measured in Step 1 to 0.05 mm (0.002 inch). The surface finish must be 0.40 µm (16.00 microinch) to 0.80 µm (32.00 microinch) to be acceptable. The wheel radius must be the same or greater than the shoulder radius (J) as measured in Step 1.
