    Super evac pump

    I have owned two of these pumps in the last 8 years, and both leak oil mysteriously, but can't seem to locate the source of the leak.

    Anyone have this issue. Mine is the 6CFM.

    Always used JB until I bought the TEZ8. Never had a problem, never been unhappy. TEZ had a slight problem out of the box. Easy fix.

    The oil case gasket is too thin and flattens out with age, causing a leak. Quicker if the pump gets hot running all night on new installs. Easy and cheap repair.

    I have the 8cfm, it leaked from the gasket between the case halves.
