    I'll cap off the holes so I don't lose any more fumes.

    Sounds like a great tech day opportunity......:skull:

    That would be great if you have one. Although I have a feeling there may be other culprits after reading Ryan's response.

    There's also a guy that supposed to be able to fix this for ~$60. Drills out the holes and inserts Teflon lined bushings.

    Thanks:beer:

    Hopefully, if nothing comes up and snafus my plans.

    It has a little surface rust but I think it will clean up nicely.

    Modified water fire extinguisher. Good for a quick rinse while primitive camping. 2.5 gallons of water + 100psi air pressure good for about 90 seconds of continuous flow. White ring (next to gauge) is used to keep the extinguisher's handle valve open, flow control via nozzle.

    I finally pulled apart my mini truck power steering box after @OTRAMM helped me get the adjustment plug out. The box came out of a junk yard in Minnesota so it's pretty crusty on the outside but luckily inside it doesn't look too bad. I dropped the parts in Evaporust so hopefully they'll turn out ok.

    And you are correct. After realizing that the valve is only for the rear I figured out to adjust the rod. Couple 1/4 turns and all is well. thanks to everyone for their input!!!

    It is very good, IMHO. Low odor and evap rate. It degreases well too. I've been happy with it.

    De-clutering my shop, I took a bunch of parts this old bike a while ago to figure out what it needs. Time to put them back on until I get time to work on it again.
