Wow, what a headache this has turned into. Yes, it was indeed the pump. Turns out the shaft-keyway-key had sheared off, and in doing so, broke the top of the shaft socket on the pump and causing it to leak out it's oil. The engine shaft was OK. So I ordered a new pump and a key that was supposed to fit, but didn't. Best price I could find on the pump was $124.
The key that was supposed to fit was just a hair too big and I wasted several hours and a lot of cussing trying to get the pump on. Ended up having to make a key from bar stock.
Once I finally got the new pump on and tried it, the engines wasn't running right. Too high of an RPM when the trigger was not depressed, and to low of an RPM and struggling when I pulled the trigger. Ran for a bit, then backfired and died and would not restart. Took it to my nephew who works on small engines and it has no compression, and at the very least has broken a ring and will need to be rebuilt.
When it rains, it pours.
