      A bad rod bearing will thunk more slowly than a bad lifter on the same cylinder, although a bad rod bearing can sound like it's coming from the top end. That sounds like a bad rod bearing. Time...

      I cut the centers out of rubber pipe caps from the hardware store and fit one at each end of my inline 044. Then I placed it into the center of a 4" aluminum tube cut to the same length as the pump...
