Seized my 08 800 xp on fri i have it tore apart and was wondering if there is any way to check the oil pump to see if it is working properly. My mag side seized, not real bad and my pto side looks real dry just wondering if it could be the oil pump
The oil pump "nylon gear" can and does strip! had it happen to me, and when this happens not only do you loose oil injection you loose water pump cooling. They are a "edit for bad language" to change due to the fact that you've got to pull the engine (unless somebody on hear knows how to do it without} just make sure that when you do replace the gear that you fill the cavity with injection oil. I remember when mine went " it was ripping and then the hot light came on and I said WHAT" same thing happened to my buddy with his 08. Good luck!
