    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.

    Thanks Paul. I'll try that and check the Banjo bolts for color.

    17th Annual Southern Cruiser Crawl

    Just a note. I carry an 80 series fusible link and fuel pump in my drawer unit. Several other parts are available for the 100 series including a spare axle, c-clips, wheel flange, @medtro EFI bypass, and related items. In roughly 2 hours I can have spare right and left lower control arms.

    Right. No lab results are available yet. A new OEM reservoir was added in December of 2021.

    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...

    Another Power Steering Pump - 4 Month Program

    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...

    I'll try to make a video. I'm working with a fairly new OEM hose.

    Another Power Steering Pump - 4 Month Program

    As a side note, the steering is very easy to turn now. Better than I remember. Almost like the Chrysler power steering from the 1960s. But it whines like a 1995 F150.

    Yes. I can see fluid circulating and foaming does happen. The foaming seems to be worse when the cap is off.

    That would be great! Especially considering the cost.

    Another Power Steering Pump - 4 Month Program

    Cleaned the reservoir and followed the flush and bleed procedure using M1. The bleeding procedure is good. It took roughly 12 lock-to-lock cycles to get all of the bubbles out. The pump was quiet when I started it up afterward. Unfortunately, the whine returns when the engine is running...

    Ozarks are incredible in Nov. This is from the big campsite at Victor.

    100 Series meetup / camp / wheel Ozarks in October 2022?

    Here's a video from last year's Labor Day run. We ran the same trails in an opposite direction in October.

    100 Series meetup / camp / wheel Ozarks in October 2022?

    I bought tickets for Rendezvous. I don't know if I will be camping or staying somewhere close. We had a good time running the trails in that area last year with a group from Texas. I plan to be in the area to run trails.

    17th Annual Southern Cruiser Crawl

    Question: Do we have any participants coming in from Canada or outside of the U.S.? I know many people are traveling a good distance. Just curious about whether I should refer to this as an international event?
