Welcome to page 80!

VIDEO CLIP

My trunk release solenoid burnt up on me. That model was NLA so got a different one from Amazon and made it work. The output pulse from the remote brain was well over a second long and was frying the solenoid coil. I used a capacitor in series with the relay coil to shorten the time the relay is energized to a quarter second. Should be good now

Three spots need to be sealed on outside of the tank but pump didn't come with right ones so I used silicone.

Capped off the return and hi pressure out for a leak test on the bench. I filled the reservoir to the top, extended hose to floor pan, started car for 2 s, refilled reservoir, ran for 2 s, put return together. Flushed out all the old crap from lines and gear box, took about a half liter to do it. No more P/S noise!

Bushing chewed out on one of my power window winder heads. I had it secured to far away to the door so it walked out. Flipped the bushing around and put a smear of epoxy in it. Added some screws to the mounts on both doors and they work good again.
