What a polava ! Jeep saga

In an earlier post I had sent off for the replacement Power steering pump. It arrived after 5 days  but alas it was the wrong one ! It appears to be for the Cherokee and not the Grand Cherokee.
My impatience got the better of me and having determined which of the many different model PSP's is the one for my model and configuration I decided to get one from a Jeep breakers here in the UK.
It arrived with flywheel on and reservoir attached and in theory ready to just bolt on.
All done , turned the engine over and .........a fountain of Power steering fluid from the pump. Maybe that was the reason the jeep was in the Scrapsyard !  bummer.
Sent to Poland and correct one arrived, attached a reservoir ( got several by now lol) and flywheel.
Yesterday I attached it all to the vehicle , filled up the reservoir and hey presto - back on the last  !

Party on !

Nice carved rear

Busy busy busy

Busy few days coming up, gotta do a fluid change on my bike , change the power steering pump on the Jeep ..........and visit relatives too.

Got carried away- in a good way

Stumbled across a thread on the HD Forums whilst looking for something else. 2 hours ago !
It is a really interesting account by DK Custom of Red banks Mississippi.USA step by step postings with loads of useful pics of their SBS Sportster chop project. Taking a 2003 anniversary edition stock Sportster Custom and turning it into a cool hard-tail chop with Jockey shift. The bike has been a project by Kevin at DK , working for whatever hours he can find outside the working business day. Although the bike is now finished the final postings with pics are yet to appear in the next couple of weeks. Definitely worth taking a look here
