Yep. Mine were hard as rock. New ones from TRF; I'll be sure to check for snugness. I want to do a "quality" rebuild. I only plan to do it once. At least for free, anyway. That's the reason for all t

Don't forget the Facet filters - they are a very fine mesh to protect the pump. Use them in addition to your regular filter. ** triumphs@autox.team.net ** Archive: http://www.team.net/archive
