    Fellow Mec'ers,

    Can someone tell me the importance of the 9000H cylinder vent tube? Why is it tied into the bottom od tne mount block? I have the older cylinder that does not have this in the system. Any insight is appreciated!

    Tank you and happy new year!!!

    The older cylinder would fill up with oil, if the seals leaked, and stop working. The newer models will let the oil drop back into the pump and still work.

    You don't need to install it. I was told that by Dave Kern from MEC.
