Discussion for the Ridgid 1224 Pipe And Bolt Threading Machine
I have seen this a lot, there are a few things that could cause this. Check the seals and springs on the valve plate. Check the hoses for breaks especially near the gear. Also the drive pin (roll pin) should only come out one side of the shaft, I have encountered people who think it comes out both sides since it looks like there are 2 slots to fit it in. The pin is only to fit in the squared slot not the round one. When pump is slid onto shaft correctly there should only be a 1/8" gap from pump to keyway. If installed correctly and still not working try to force prime the pump with a squeeze bottle filled with oil.
