I think i read some where about them drying up over time!! But at the moment its running and i coudn't be happier, cheers everyone.
Well done, I can not remember off hand how it comes apart (maybe the plunger just pulls out the body) but if I remember correctly yes there should be some gland around the pump plunger, I just used small string, there is also oil holes around the top to help keep it moist.
