Any suggestions or pics from anyone ?
That page is ripped out of my haynes book so im gonna type the steps up later so i dont lose it. My pump went bad yesterday.I went & bought a Haynes & um . . . uhh, there's no major relevation on it & we had basically done most of the steps Haynes listed (except drain coolant/ps res).
But bottom line is, after reading everyone's post, I realized it all just might be my tensioner. We had taken it off & it seemed pretty loose. We got another one and damn, new one is stiff. By time we got back to the tensioner on the car, the old tensioner case had split! Put new one on and all the interior lights seemed brighter and huh . . . it could fix it!
All that still doesn't fix the control arm bushing bolt from being sheared. Gotta fix that still . . .
The ideal tool would be a 16pt+ box wrench with a cut out opening to get the line past and slip this tool on the nut, extend the handle as well.how did you disconnect the line on pump behind the accessory bracket?
I don't think we have anything small enough to get them.
very interested in how you did that.
From what I understand....I've heard that it's a 50/50 shot that a replacement pump will whine right off, but functionally be fine. Don't know if that goes for all pumps or just the OEM replacements.

Good idea to make it easier to assemble, but depending on what you use to tighten down the rubber hose on the steel hose, the pressure might blow it apart or you may develop a leak. I'd leave it alone.if i cut the metal line in the back down the middle, to add a rubber hose in the middle to make a extension would that be a bad idea?
Navy Lifer gets credit from me for the manual, he posted it to help me in my post with the gear box install.Thanks, printed for future. I hope not to be in a position I have to pay a shop when the next one goes down.
And appreciate the link for the manual too!
I wouldn't do that.if i cut the metal line in the back down the middle, to add a rubber hose in the middle to make a extension would that be a bad idea?
