OK, well we wanted to take my Jeep out for run tonight - we are trying to get it done for the weekend
Anyway.... We had made a mistake about 2 weeks ago, we had taken off the PS box (AGR) when we were doing our buildup - OK, well the fluid was out of the pump for the most part, so what did we forget to do after we got the suspension on & the TBI installed and the PS system hooked back up, -add PS fluid. So we wrecked the pump. We realized it didn't have fluid relatively quickly - didn't take it anywhere, until we added fluid. But we did run it a little (down the road, and up onto the ramp) with the damaged pump (that worked, but needed replaced)
OK, so we bought a NEW AGR pump (ouch!) and installed it, and if you saw my previous posts, it took a long, long time to get the system bled, and we replaced the return line while we were at it.
So, that brings us to tonight, we start the Jeep, and start to try to move it out of the garage, and the steering is REALLY tight. This with skimpy little 205 tires on it (so it will fit in the garage) So.... we are thinking that the pump is bad.
I'm ticked 'cause the friggin AGR pump is $$$$ and even worse it is time lost. What do you guys think, do you think it is the pump, or do you think we damaged the box somehow (that doesn't make much sense to us, as people lose power steering pumps all the time on cars & just replace the pump, not the box, too - but knowing AGR - who knows)
Anyway, help! Please! I want to go wheelin' this weekend!
Oh, and not only this, please see my post on my heim joints that suck.
