Meiller Kipper 262/19 hydraulic pump
The original Meiller Kipper 262/19 pump in bits and pieces
Meiller Kipper hydraulic pump had a
broken excentric shaft and coupling.
Spare parts for the pump were not available anymore. Meiller Kipper, nor Magirus in Ulm had any spare parts left.
Als several companies specialized in aerial ladder maintanance and Magirus service workshops in Europe were not able to supply any parts.
In Germany an old pump of a slightly diffrent type was found. Unfortunately the main shaft was not exchangeble with the broken shaft. The pump was purchased anyway for other spare parts that might be needed later.

As a result of the excessive axial movement of the excentric shaft the pump seized and the shaft coupling broke.
The right bearing and distance ring of the spare pump are used this time.
