Hose from reservoir is pretty short and reservoir is attached to shock tower. Hose supplied from PSC is fairly stiff, I got a new can and some silicone hose that is softer than what's there and see how it works. The rear steer pump can has a much longer hose and I've had no issues it with it.

Couple weekends ago I had an opportunity to play monster truck during intermission at the local race track. Not sure if the crowd enjoyed it but I had a great time. Was only about 5 minutes or so. My wife got some video but she wasn't in a very good spot. I hit the triple on the motocross track a little to aggressively and bent both rear bump stop pads and damaged one of the bump stops and also managed to break a sway bare arm. Don't know how to embed but here's a link: https://youtu.be/3BOxaSp1shQ

Life has been busy, but I am finally setting some time aside to do some much needed maintenance to get ready for KOH. No racing for me this year so I will have much more time to wheel my turd around in the rocks and maybe get into a little trouble. Might even try to get this big bitch up Backdoor :eek:
As for the wife's Bronco, not a good story. We needed to have some work done on our house and the work ran over budget about $12K so the Bronco had to go to free up some cash. We don't talk about it.

I did rig up this operation with stuff I had kicking around the shop and a van seat someone dumped at the car wash so my kid and his escort could ride for the homecoming parade. It was his idea. I don't think his lady friend knew what she had agreed to, the look on her face was priceless when she saw where they were riding.

I think it's totally cool. I'm sure she loved it. Should have fixed the fender though.
Lot more to fixing the fender than fixing the fender so it won't be fixed until the cab is replaced. And right now I have no plans to replace the cab anytime soon.

Working on a tire repair...

Stainless steel jewelry cable stitches. First time I have ever tried this. Trying to patch before would just push the patch through the hole. I used a needle to pull the cable so hopefully I didn't cut anymore of the belting so the stitches don't tear out. We'll see what happens.

Had to quit wheeling early at KOH because the transmission started acting up. Was trying to be optimistic because it would still move in all the gears, it just needed some RPM to do so. Finally had some time to check into it a little further. Pulled the drain plug and thought, well that's not great but not terrible.
Then I dropped the pan. It's terrible. Guess transmission is coming out. Found some small pieces of bearing, shit ton of aluminum pieces, and a tiny bit of brass. No friction material though. I'm guessing the direct thrust bearing came apart for some reason and started chewing up the case as it did. Not sure where else the aluminum could be coming from. Hopefully it's not a total shit show. I do have a spare case, so that's good.
