I had also gotten holes with what I would describe as rough threads, not smooth.

    I just noticed that I have not had that problem since and have not broken a single tap since that belt and pulley change on the encoder. Seems that it was skipping a tooth or so on the reversing of the tap. That also caused the rough threads as it was slightly off on the retract even if it did not break.

    Just thought I would let those who may be experiencing the same thing, with the older machine with the encode mounted inside the spindle housing, know that that may be the issue.

    Thanks for the follow up. Glad it has been working good for you.

    Mike, 6 years later! My 98 VF2 did the exact scenario. Pump coupler failed,crumbling hose, have to do same thing. Your post helped. Does the tank lift up attached to the bottom of the transmission? Can you attach a new hose without more disasembly?

    Truth is I don't remember. It has been a long while. I am thinking I spliced into the hose, but not sure.
