Testing our pickled 40e. I bled the aor, replaced the pre filter, the oump is moving though you can see the flow/ water both before and after the unit simply moving back and forth, any ideas? Almost lile a valve is bad/ stuck.

Sounds like the check valves are stuck open. Can you see water moving in and out of the suction line?
