    PS system will prime itself without any issue. Just don't start it with the reservoir dry and it will be ok. once it starts, add fluid as needed.

    Tthere is the flood start mode you can try, stand on the pedal and crank it. It will stop spraying fuel and may clear itself out enough to go. Maybe.

    Not if you rebuild your pump and upon reassembly you use liberal amounts of Lucas mucus it won't! Other than that tho, yeah they self-prime just fine, tho I usually spin the pulley by hand quite a few times to help it. Cordless drill with an old alt pulley rigged in the chuck and an old belt also works quite well.

    After removing the plugs, cleaning them and letting things air out a bit all was fine.

    I was gonna say if you pulled plugs just leave them out for a while and gasoline will evaporate in a timely enough fashion. But I forgot to do so, lol

    local to work AZ had the 2002 high pressure power steering line in stock so I nabbed it just in-case my last ditch effort flare job does not hold.

    What did you have to flare anyways? If you have things the way I think you do there should have been been able to just unbolt the box PS hose from the brass union and leave the union attached to the section of whale aluminum pressure line. Did you not have enough space to get tools in there to do that?

    Things got disrupted when removing the box PS hose from union and the whale side of things no longer wanted to seal.

    Ah, ok, that's kinda weird it happened but whatever, you got it fixed.

    Btw on my valve cover issues, I found a set of the older taller Ford tins that I thought would clear, well I have to take baffles out but other than that yes they clear the rockers just fine. Intake vacuum elbows needed to be turned 90 degrees so they point sideways and then they clear as well, one turned fine but the other broke off so I cut it down almost flush with the intake and tapped the steel for regular 3/8" bolt, then threaded such a bolt (very short one) in with RTV as a thread sealer. Expecting zero issues with any of that.

    Updates....

    None.


    Planning to start on some mans trans swap bits. Primary attacking and building the pedal assembly. Fancy brake and clutch pedal covers are going on so some re-working of the mustang stock clutch pedal and panther brake pedals are in order.

    Haven't touched the car since my last post as I have been BUSY and its been darn cold or flat out cruddy to do anything.

    Hoping nothing leaks and I can button the things up.
