Awesome. Get that guy installed!
Still on the original but don’t know who many miles on it. When I bought the engine it was missing the VP on delivery so the seller pulled one from another engine to send me. I’ve rebuilt it once about 30K ago.Maintenance evening.

My Wabco vaccum pump has been leaking oil at the seal between the front and back half of the vacuum pump. It was starting to get bad and decided to replace it and my weeping power steering pump while I was doing this too. Both were replaced under warranty. Was a great time to degrease everything and clean it all up. Went and swapped out the VP and PSP.

Installed the VP but the trickiest part is the back top bolt of the power steering pump. Had to use a small 14MM socket with a small hex adapter extension and 1/4” box end wrench. Also the lip on the body of the power steering pump was hitting the lower bolt that’s the bracket for the injection pump. Used flap disc and contoured the lip so it’d clear the bolt.

Got it all back assembled and refilled power steering pump and bled the air in system by lifting front of the 60 off the ground and rocking tires slowly side to side.

Took Snowball for a test drive up the road and got back. No leaks. Decided to continue to degrease and and pressure wash.

@Mr Cimarron how many Wabco vacuum pumps have you had fail. This is my 3rd reman.
Just ordered from @cruiseroutfit a new split case gasket and long spacer for the input shaft as I cut mine shorter.So is your transfer case actually squared away now? I was having nightmares about missing seals, backwards gears..
Did you get the hd input gear thats fully splined?Just ordered from @cruiseroutfit a new split case gasket and long spacer for the input shaft as I cut mine shorter.
Driving the 60 I’m noticing no issue. Noise and shifting isn’t n issue but am going to install that AA spacer as soon as I get parts from Cruiser Outfitters. Thanks Matt for the heads up!
I’ll have a follow up as soon as I can
