“T3PRanch”Drill out and re-thread a size bigger. Then use an adapter to go to hose from new pump port. Funny I thought I posted this yesterday but it is not here.

Hill might do some kind of warranty too.


I’m probably going to go the route of buying a new pump body.  I did use Marine-Tex on it this afternoon and it has held up to 170 bar… whereupon I discovered that the water drain out plug starts to leak at that pressure.  I will probably see if that is stripped or just needs a washer to seal it.  I may glue it also.  These are temporary repairs until I can get the new body.  I don’t like it either.  A new Hill pump may be in my future and this one may become backup repair parts or a backup pump if I can repair it properly.
