ok so one of the things that i hate about this swap, is the space. there is none...

my leak ended up being power steering fluid, did not realize that until too late... i drove the car 15 seconds into the garage with out it, and the pump screeches even with new fluid. the leak was fixed, but the pump needs replace...

so i ordered a new pump on fleabay, and it came dirty as crap..,,, after washing it looked better...



of course me thinking it was going to be a 2 hour job, after the mess i made with ps oil, and unable to reach 1 bolt. realized that i needed to lower the engine.... sucks....



maybe time to modify the mount...



i cannot even reach from this top part.... but there is more space....



ill try again tomorrow, im concerned ill need to drop the subframe a few inches too, this will let me reroute the lower pressure hose.....

Are you able to access the rear bank for spark plug replacement? Or will this be another thing where you'll need to drop the engine a little to get to them?

I'm sure it's worth it, but man... What a pain in the ass.

yes but its a tight space. thats why the plugs are changed when the clutch needs change..... lol


so after 6 hours of several finnagles, and cussing....



able to get it out..

used a 1/4 socket, with medium size 14mm, to finally loosen second bolt.

then droped subframe 1/4 inch, also disconnected the sway bar, and also tie rod, and moved steering to left. to finally get it out....

.

I had forgotten how tight it was.... lol.. next to put it back together.....

like what? rwd, not likely, or awd never...

anyways today was very productive. after the stupid ps pump was in



decided to take the old ps low pressure line, and toss it...



went to work and got my line straightened..



after a few bends here and there obtained this...



had to make a bead to avoid hoses slipping



tossed the old one in the recycle



this is not paint, i tried something new. i used shrink tubing, protects better. but pain to do...



makes it look better, but the curves suck...



gives it a more professional look..



i also fixed some loose wiring from the radiator relays... and now i have to make a new mount for the reservoir, i was going to use aftermarket, but will stay oem



probably need a cleaner one...

I like the shrink tube idea...

That PS line came out great! I don't have the patience for things like that.

Tried having the nose of the car lifted while turning the wheel lock to lock, and the engine off, topping it off as needed?
