Swifttech mcp655 pump in xspc dual bay reservoir leaking help

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I was in the process of putting my loop together and I set everything up to where it was all connected and I started my loop to test it for leaks and lo and behold I had a leak at the plastic mounting plate of the reservoir where the pump is attached to it.

I took it apart and realized that when I installed the pump to the reservoir the plastic mounting plate was bent down to the reservoir and there were gaps in the center of each side of the pump. Was I supposed to take the o-ring that was inside the mounting plate out? it seems like the pump sits in the reservoir better when the mounting plate doesn't have the o-ring in it.

The plate is ruined now, I'm assuming (since it's bent downward from pressure from the screws. I took the o-ring out and tried to get it as tight as I could and still had no luck. Any tips would be much appreciated!!

I don't have any way to get any better pictures, I can show you how it looks now, however.

This is without the o-ring inside of the middle of that black bracket. If the o-ring is in there, when the plate is screwed down onto the reservoir, it almost seems like it doesn't fit and the corners fasten down but the whole plate bows on each corner leaving a small gap in the middle of each side of it. I'm not sure where to go from here though.

By the way, the side shown in the picture is the side that was leaking, I'm not 100% certain if the other sides were or not, as they were inside the reservoir where I could feel the bottom side with my hand as it was happening. Hope this helps

There is your problem, i understand the problem your having with it on. But it needs to be there for a reason. It seals the connection.

You need the o ring on the lip of that d5 pump(that silvery part of the pump). It is what seals the pump to the Res. Make sure to use the o ring provided by xspx and not the one from the pump

Did you place the O-ring between the pump and the pump retainer or is it between the pump and the reservoir? It needs to be between the pump and the reservoir. I just received the same two components two days ago and the reservoir came with an O-ring that was slightly less massive then the one that came with the pump. Use the one that came with reservoir. Be sure that the order of installation is reservoir, O-ring, Pump, and then pump retainer.

Let me fiddle with this with what you said simplyorange, I received the retainer with the o-ring inside of it so I assumed that's where it went. Let me put it between the reservoir and the pump and see if that does anything. Keep posted, I'll be posting results in about 20 minutes

Okay, so after messing with this thing for a bit, it's still leaking a good bit. I put the o-ring where some people recommended, and it was still pretty significant. Here are a couple pictures from 2 of the sides of the pump when I went res > o-ring > pump > retainer

You can see in these pictures how the retainer bends and distorts the seal. I don't know what else I'm supposed to do sadsmiley.gif

Not sure if it's just me, but the hole where the impeller is protruding into the reservoir doesn't even look deep enough weirdsmiley.gif.
I mean, what IS that part?
