Fixed Tuthill Fill-Rite FR700 Diesel Transfer Pump

After sitting for several months, my 115v diesel pump would hum but not run when turned on.  I took the lemon shaped end plate off, removed the fiber key that holds the rotor to the motor drive shaft, put a screwdriver in the motor drive shape and gave it a turn.  I then replaced the plate and tested the motor.  Took 5 minutes.  It ran fine.  


Quick and cheap fix.  The rebuild kit costs hundreds of dollars and doesn't address that part and a new pump costs $500 or more.
