Does the model Sunstrand have a oil strainer & where if so

Have gone through 3 plugged nozzles in the last month & 1/2. Replaced the inline filter each time too but just learned through a web search it might have a strainer in the pump itself too??

It is a Sundstrand A2Va 7016, 3450 RPM, counterclockwise rotation. It has 2 lines, one with the inline filter going in and then one without a firter on the bottom which I think is the return line??

Anyone know if this model has a strainer? There are 4 bolts on the plate that has the model number info and the two lines go into it right there so is that where it would be located?

Thank you in advance for any help.

It does indeed have a strainer as do all Suntec pumps. To access the strainer you need to remove the four 5/16" hex head screws on the pump cover.

Ok, great!! One more question if I could. I saw different Sundstrand strainers listed doing a search and they were like J model, H model, A model.

Is mine a A model?

Yes, yours is an 'A' model. A2VA-7016
Make sure you get a gasket with the strainer & DO NOT remove that pump cover until you have the new gasket in hand. Chances are the old one will be destroyed once you remove the pump cover.

Parts source??

Sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but a neighbor loaned me his shop heater, mostly because it wouldn't work, and he knows that I can't resist fixing stuff. The heater has an A2VA-7016 pump, and I'd love to get parts for it so I can clean the strainer. So far, I can find plenty of vendors that will sell me a complete pump, but haven't found a source for parts. Where can I buy parts?

The problem with the heater was that whoever worked on it last, reassembled it without the ball in the pressure regulator (I hate it when that happens!). Great flow back to the tank - no pressure to the nozzle!
Thanks,
Jim
