swirvin21 so what happened??
08-28-2016 09:56 PM
Diablo169 Well, I haven't had the Jeep out much at all since Moab, so I never really tackled the steering issue. I'm going to install the newer design PSC reservoir. I read that the old style was causing cavitation issues. I'm also going to replace the feed line with some -10 Braided Russell line, in case the line is being pinched by vacuum.

If this doesn't fix it, the only other option is to replace the pump. I'm assuming the pump is probably the problem. This is my second pump of the same style, and with both I've had the same boiling over issue. It's just hard to believe it's the pumps design, seeing that this was a matching set purchased from PSC. The fact that PSC doesn't offer this pump anymore tells me that I'm not the only one with this issue.

New PSC Reservoir. -6 Return, -10 Feed.

This was what I was referring to. 8" sounds like a long return for only 3" drop. Any curves, turns or anything? I know the return lines tend to be small, consider pulling the pump and drilling the return fitting and possibly the reservoir outlet to bump up hose size. Going up one size can drastically improve flow without having to repackage things

My return from the reservoir is only about 8" long, 5/8" diameter and drops about 3" from reservoir to pump. My lines to and from my cooler are pretty long though.

I'm going to recheck and try to fully bleed the entire system, and check the fittings. I also remember reading something about the old PSC reservoirs causing issues. I had this same issue 10 years ago when I installed this same system when I went Ram assist. If it is a pump issue, I don't see how two of these pumps could give me the same issues.

Another problem I was thinking could be if I didn't fully bleed my Dual Pass Derale cooler, and it might have an air pocket in it.

I'll do some more reading and keep this updated.

Diablo169 Well, a lot of updating to do to this thread. I got back from Easter Jeep Safari and had a pretty good time. We learned that JK guys aren't really our crowd, and that Moab completely shuts down by 9pm. But we had a good time, no major issues.

I'm still battling PS boiling over. I bought a new pump same style as my old from M4O, but it still boiled over. I was also getting dead spots in the steering which lead to me almost running into BDS's trailer while drive 30mph through town. Zero steering is not cool. I need to read through the KOH Steering Thread in Gen 4x for some help. I'm really at a loss of what my issue is.





I was just getting at it and I almost rolled 15' into Kane Creek, can I blame the steering?




Our camp. FordFacist's new race trailer kept the wind and dust at bay.


Didn't fix the problem

Diablo169 Well I put together a 10 minute video, but it doesn't seem to want to upload to YouTube. So I guess I'll just throw up some pics.

A whole shit ton of work has gone into this thing to get it fully ready. Once again thanks in part to FordFascist, RockTard and my brother for helping me get all the accessories in and wired up. Now I'm pushing to make Easter Jeep Safari 2016

Here are some of the shots from Hollister.

Not only is that a bro hat, but I'm pimping Vision X, and I don't even have any of their lights


Side Panels painted and installed.


High Lift jack was last minute placed on top using High Lift Tube Mounts, but I like it, so I think it's going to stay there. Yeti is fastened tightly thanks to some Turn Buckles, and CB Dual Antenna's are bolted in place.


Guess how that landing felt...

Diablo169 Well, I didn't make it to KOH, it's been pretty rough at work, but we put together a last minute trip to Hollister Hills.

Carnage report. Jammed right rear bump stop, bent front right lower link, caved in driver side of the hood, boiled over Power Steering multiple times, and scratched the $hit out of the under carriage. Not bad for 4 hours of wheels at a groomed OHV park

That being said, Jeep performed awesome and we had a pretty good time.

Rocktard took lots of pics, so we'll get more up soon.



Shit'll buff out
02-03-2016 10:28 PM
rocktard The plan was to head down to KOH at noon today and believe it or not the Jeep was ready. The powers that be deemed it necessary to throw a monkey wrench in the plans and stole Diablo away for another emergency job. Here are a few of the pictures I grabbed while we were in process last night I'm sure Diablo will update this weekend.

This is 8 hours prior to heading to KOH (which didn't happen).


1am is a terrible time to find out the new rocker switch doesn't work.


Most Expensive Work Bench ever!


Rock Lights




All the LUMENS!

What do you do for a living?
Damn I like this jeep!
02-02-2016 02:57 PM
rocktard Since diablo (aka DBlow) isn't updating this thread I'm hijacking it to show off some of the work done prior to KOH.

These are the Lexan body panels. Red panels were platidip'd.





This is the inside of the panel, just for fun.
01-26-2016 02:25 PM
swirvin21 was thinking the same thing as pitchit
01-26-2016 11:43 AM
pitchitpitchit If you have time, weld a raised ring around those skid bolts. I have broken bolts on my skid that were like that. Hope to see it at KOH!

So kudos, and best of luck with it once you hit the trail.
Thank you, your post gave me motivation to work on it

Diablo169 Well I just got off of an emergency job where I put in 125 hours in 7 days. Needless to say, I'm running out of time to get ready for KOH.

I'm trying to focus on the necessary items such as Body Panels, ARB Compressor, and lighting. I'm going to try and squeeze the Stereo in if possible.

I got the engine skid fully installed today. Frame made with 1x1 .120 wall, and skid is 3/16", Should hold up.









Did a quick front end. Smittybilt Raised Winch Mount $108 Amazon, and some Curt Tow Hooks. I also angled in the bumper ends.


I got both side panels mounted up. I just need to shape the wheel wells.

Diablo169 Yeah, It might be there till the weekend. Hopefully your garage has a weekly rate

Thanks for taking it to get smogged. Now its time to get her ready for KOH. What a better maiden voyage

EDIT: I know you used it to pick up on high school chicks, so I think we're even.
01-13-2016 01:22 AM
FordFascist Look what showed up at my house. But apparently it passes smog and displaced my Super Duty for a night

This, the lexan/ plexiglass what not is a terrible dust magnet, you wheel in a dusty area you'll drive blind when the sun hits the windshield. I had a racing / lexan windshield and took it out because of that and replaced it with a glass windshield, much much happier this way. Otherwise a great build and man the patience to stick with it for 6 years.

Great build by the way. Enjoy it.


Kevin
The holes are oversized, but I did tighten the bolts down pretty tight. I didn't really think about future issues. Maybe I'll switch out the washers for some rubber backed washers and then just tighten the bolts snug, and check them ever so often.

01-04-2016 10:38 PM
Diablo169 I can't believe how much more I have to do...

I hopefully fixed the EVAP Leak. I just flooded the Electrical Plugs on the pump with some Moto Seal. Kind of like gasket maker, but dries pretty hard. The JB Weld cracked on the filler neck, I think I applied it to thin. I coated it with Moto Seal as well, should hold at least till I get it smogged.

RockTard came over and helped me with some stuff.

I built a light bar. Probably overkill 1 1/2" .120. I cut and welded the factory mounting tabs to the new bar. Total weight with lights 29lbs!


(2) 20" Dual Row 7w Phillips from SideTracked Offroad here on pirate. Lifetime Warranty! I'm also in this pic, I'm figuring out a front Winch Mount/ Bumper. I have this new 12K Mile Marker, but I'm not sure if I want to run it.


I had him custom make them with the centers Flood, and the outside Spot. Each one has 36 7w LED's and put out 15,100 Raw Lumens. So I should have enough light for night wheeling. Also, in this pic, I'm taking measurements for extending the cowl.


I have to remake the support tube, The one I made was way to long


RockTard also helped me get the side templates made up. Using straight cuts of paper board makes everything easier!




Perfect fit both sides, first try I had to reorder Rivnuts so, I'll wait till I get the panels fully mounted to mark out and trim the wheel openings.
