    Events/Trails Cruisers on the Rocks II "The Deuce" : October 20-23 Windrock Park, Tennessee

    That is so accurate. I think the last thing anyone wants to see is me sitting around the picnic table on my work laptop on a zoom meeting with an off-shore group at night.

    Thank you Paul. I will go looking for an IF temp gun to look for hot spots. Another clue is interstate driving on the 17 hour trip back from CO seems to be a sure way to roast a pump.

    On my 99 model, the bolts are very different from the rack vs. the pump side. The pump side is a 22mm with a long nipple that screws deep into the pump. IIRC the rack side banjo is a more conventional looking 14mm like the one in your picture. That one is the original rack's banjo.

    One other item. I made the mistake of touching the pump at the fitting where lines from the reservoir connect for just a few seconds after it had been running for 10 to 15 minutes. I got a burn and blister like I had touched the exhaust manifold. I'm curious to get a temp gauge that will...

    I have the old cooked fluid from two different timeframes in jars that I planned to send to Blackstone Labs. The dark sludge was from the bottom of the reservoir that had built up over 3 to 4 months. I'll look to get a magnet and run it through the sludge to find any metal particles...

    The aftermarket reservoir was replaced long ago with a new OEM. Sunsong hoses were replaced with OEM during the last episode. Pump torqued to 13 ft lbs. Everyting in the area was cleaned atter old rack front diff, and many other parts were removed. Cap plugs were removed after rack was...
