Pay it forward......
If you have the early pump, do what ever it takes to take the pulley off, in the car.
The bolt going in from the front wasn't much fun to get out or in with the pulley in place.
There 4 holes in it that you could jag a tool thou to stop it rotating while you undo the nut...
Anyone rebuilt their UZJ100 steering vane pump, yet?
Mine is an early one, and a bit different to the one in my manual.
Anyone got any tips or pics?
I had a search, but couldnt find anything.
Anyone got some pages from the FSM they can post up?
Be proactive and get the solenoid now.
I put mine in the RHS side wing of the bar, and mounted the Warn remote plug to some 2" x 3/16 plate I bolted to the front of the hole for the control box. I like to see the cable wind on, and having the remote plug in the center of the bar looks nice as well.
I used some 3mm thick, 5 bar chequer alluminium sheet - it was free.
I secured it with rivnuts in every 2nd original hole, and M6 stainless domed socket head cap screws. I cut it with a jigsaw and trimmed it with some rubber edge section.
It only gets warm when the sun is straight on it, but...
I used a 1/2" x 9" bolt, but some threaded rod would do. The sockets were 3/4 drive - 41mm and 35mm with a 54mm OD and 46mm OD.
You just need to destroy the flanged end of the old bush (or use a bigger socket) but Im sure you have a new bush ready to fit.
This job really was not a big deal - in...
I pressed mine out and the new ones in with a long 1/2" (or so) bolt and 2 sockets- no cutting.
I bent over the flange on the old bush so my larger socket would better sit against the chassis.
They pressed out and in easily.
Once the old ones were out, you could see how fatigued they were.
I did the first side only dropping the the upper ball joint. It was a PITA to get the CV out and in.
The other side, I split the lower ball joint (took 2 minutes) but made the job much easier and quicker overall.
Next time I will split the lower ball joint again, straight away - so much easier-...
