Get a load of this I tore it apart cleaned up everything and there is no snap ring I had this rebuilt with new bearings and seals last fall and the guy who built it must have forgot a snap ring that would be why it lasted ONLY A FEW MINUTES Anyhow im going to put it back together myself this time WITH THE SNAP RING!! DAM!!!!
