I need some help with my Rob Roy Engine that I recently bought and am trying to refurbish. It was oirginally built in about 1976.

After firing the engine up, it was noticed that the front axle pump/boiler feed pump was not working and the water did not feed into axle pump.

Does anyone know of an easy was to see how we could remove the pump or check to see if the clacks are worn without having to take half the engine to bits.

Thank you
