My SFA 4500 stripped the impellor and I was in the process of replacing it when, due to a pure lack of attention, I removed the wrong end of the pump, where the motor is located. When I broke the seal, an unknown quantity of something that smelled like mineral oil rushed out onto the workbench.
Does anyone know what this oil is, how much goes in the end and if it is actually supposed to be in there? I assume I am going to have to replace the seals and bearings, now that I have screwed up and broken the seal, but the oil has me puzzled. Any help would be appreciated, it was going to be my spare pump until needed-----
