I can get a seal kit from Danfoss but the delivery could be a few weeks. I would try either Micron Hyds or Heavy Parts Hyds, they should be able to help you.

I’m struggling to find the seal in main drive motor. It is currently peeing out oil into the over flow reservoir and then over the engine.

It’s a danfoss pump.

Have you spoken with Tom at South West Handling? They have a few for parts and have service exchange units for Merlos. They are by far and away the best Merlo dealer down here.
I have the same machine as you so I am going to make sure mine is locked in the shed at night .

@Mr Happy and @ACEngineering is the long lead time for these type of parts common? Or is just following the same pattern as everything else at this moment in time?

There's a lot going on in the world, its quite random IMO. Certain items you just cant get.

Perkins are probably the worse IMO, i have so much stuff on back order with perkins from filters, starter motors, fuel pumps and timing case i cant really remember whats what! some fuel filters i have had on back order for 6 months now! obviously got sorted elsewhere with non genuine but not what i would normally supply but needs must.

Just to jump on the back of this one, seems to be similar subject, would anyone know the specification of the main gear pump, the one that mounts on the side of the engine and services the steering and boom hydraulics?

Mine has a hairline crack through the casing and I dont really want to remove it to measure port and shaft sizes etc until I have a replacement in hand, in case the leak suddenly gets worse.

R reg 32.7EVT.

Been quoted near £700 from merlo, would be keen on a more economical option, second hand or aftermarket etc if anyone knows of one from a burnt machine etc that would be ok?

Thanks

White House products are good for pumps.

Tried them, but they need a number off the pump, which I cant see at the moment with it fitted to the machine. I'm worried If i remove it to look for numbers or measure it up I will turn an operational but leaky pump into an non -operational one, and I need the machine to feed stock every day.

Pictures of the pump might help identify it

From the info it looks like an ordinary gear pump.
Yes, I'm hoping so, but was hoping someone might have either had a working used one or been able to confirm specification so I can source:

Looking at the catalogue I'm thinking its probably a group 3 gear pump, but could be one of four rectangular flange sizes (B, X, C or D), two toothed shaft options and a choice of port options (Probably SAE rather than BSP?) and without knowing the pto ratio I'm not sure on displacement to give the rated or greater 91 l/min @210Bar.
