for the motors not working i would say it's time to put in new pump heads .. sounds like the gear is broken or someother way jammed up ... did you try to remove the key also


_test his by removing the armature in the motor and putting it on the key and try turning the gear by hand thru the armature .. if it dont move ... break out your VISA, Discover or American Express Card,

walmart might have a digital load tester to check them with ... mine does ..

also the batts... do yours have water or are they maintaince free ..and did you test the motor 12 volts off your engine battery? if so ...did you reconnect the ground ..and check your connections

if your gonna throw it away I'll pay shipping to my P.O. Dumpster


Yes the block is the ground. looks like your block/motor touch isnt putting the power through it.

or maybe your bats are just low enough to spin a motor,but not spin the key and pump head gears (when the pump is re-assembled)

charge your batts, try the setup with the batts on the charger.

mopst cheap batteries will go crap after 3 months of sitting.
