Hey 2000LC owner and beater here. A general note. I am an aerospace engineer who designs lube pumps, cooling pumps and hydraulic flight controls. I LOOVE this forum and plan to spend a bit of time here. I have my own engineering consulting company (Nickerson LLC) and am interested in acting as a technical reference in any way I can - mostly for the internals of the pumps. Most specifically the gerotor lube pump. I am also pretty good with odd hydraulic phenomena if I understand the makeup of the system well enough. I may need help there. I have likely seen it all in the category of turbine engine pumps and gearboxes, but I suspect there is a whole host of issues in the automotive world that will tilt my head a little. There are not automatic transmissions, spark plugs, stereos, coil suspensions or pistons in my world. I work from home, so I yearn for human contact as well. Pretty good setup for a forum participant. Now I can check something more often than Facebook, I hope. Bring it on.
