CP3 LEAK. New Pump and which one?
Was ready to run my truck and it would not run for 30 seconds. Found out I have a leak in my CP3. From the looks, I may have to get a new pump, not sure exactly how this would be fixed without a replacement.

Question is. I believe this is a stock pump, I bought the truck used so assuming it's stock. The previous owner added 100hp injectors.

So when replacing the pump, should I go with another stock pump or one designed for 33% modifications?

I doubt I will do much more mods as I really want this truck to preform good towing and have good gas mileage. The 100hp injectors may have already shot my gas mileage though.

OK, since there is nationwide shortage on SP3 pumps, I had two 33% mod's order from two different places and neither place had one. So both orders were canceled. Not even a good estimate on when backorders will be filled.

So, time to pull this pump out myself and see if any screws or loose.

Before I start, I have read all over the forums and net. I have read the cautions on the high pressure lines. But on most instructions on removing the CP3 there are no instructions on removing pressure before starting the removal.

Besides removing battery cables, is there any other precautions to take before removing pump? I assume the lines could still be under pressure even with truck off, then again its been off for a week. I am sure the lines have leaked down.
