Ahhh the shim! Yes, that was the next step that I was going to.
Glad you got it sorted and really glad that you’ve let us know, it may help someone else in the future.

Hydrovane 504 slow fill?
by: Doug in s.d.ca

Checked / changed the oil? No leaks?

Does it make a slight popping noise?
Could be that the vanes are getting worn?

by: t ringe

Thanks is fixed now, it was a thin film seal spacer on the rotor barrel degraded and blown causing air to leak at high pressures.
