Re: Power steering reservoir replacing
Didn't really specifically check for the play in & out I was just trying to get it put back in but I think it did lessen the play, I pushed it about 3/8" probably about 1/8" back from flush to pulley. Drove 20 miles no squealing. The pump still whines though a little here & there, probably burnt it up some from restarting with so much air. Before I installed the new pump I wanted to bleed out all of the old fluid and put it in fresh fluid first but I took off the top high pressure hose instead of the bottom low pressure hose to bleed it at first by mistake and it blew all over everywhere. And I used the pulley installer wrong I learned today threaded the short end into the pump shaft instead of the long end. Thats why I didn't get the pulley all the way pressed in, doing everything in the rain doesnt help either lol.
Thats first pump I've ever replaced, & I think I actually could've got away without using a brake bleeder & that adapter, I think it was a waste of money & time. There's no youtube videos of doing this pump that go into detail with this same pump that I came across.
Heres the tool that I bought & used for pulley install & removal. Works great, dont count on paper instructions that come with it though, I watched a youtube on it to get it right & still had to do a little figuring out.
