One of the pictures shows cone removal and presence of water in the bearing behind it. Is that something one can do to assess the pump state? Or the cone removal is problematic in itself?

The cone can be difficult to remove and there is nothing you can do once you got it off anyhow. All stock pumps will eventually fill with water, if I have already rebuilt it I ask that you leave the cone alone. You will either let the oil out or have a grease mess if it's one of my recent ones, it would void my warranty too. You can shake a stock pump in a quiet room, if it's full of water you will hear it sloshing around.  \./8

Thanks Tom. Knowing that shaking should produce noise if there is water inside is very helpful.  This acoustic method  ;) has actually occurred to me some time ago, but I was not sure if the silence I heard meant much. I am also tracking pump's weight to detect the onset of water incursion.

It was not rebuilt yet, by the way. I would not mess with your work  :)

Hey Tom,
I had my pump rebuilt by you well over a year ago, or so.
Just wondering if you had always filled them with oil, or did that come later at some point in the learning curve?
So, basically, would my pump have the oil or not?
Thanks

Your pump would have oil in it.  ;)
