Troy Bilt 2700 pump ran dry
I was using my Troy Bilt 2700 when my available water pressure dropped below minimum standards (I guess, never happened before) and the pump must have been starved, because the engine bogged down suddenly and quit. When I pulled the starter cord, the engine is hard to turn, as though the pump is dragging or binding. Any idea if there are replaceable parts in a pump that suffers run-dry syndrome, or is the likely fix a complete pump replacement? I hate to throw parts at a dead horse, to mix a metaphor, but I also hate to replace a complete assembly that only requires a new bearing, for instance.
