  1. Haha..exactly..one thing after another We got the ram and the tank set and then the high pressure hose failed.. So we are getting a new hose
  2. I am shooting from the hip as I’m on the road with no reference shop manual but…when you put the ram back on did you put the hoses back on the ram in the correct location not reversed? PUT BACK SAME WAY Also, I seem to remember a deflector in the reservoir that keeps the return fluid under control and not blowing against the lid. Maybe I’m just dreaming that? Also, could you have a cracked fitting or lose fitting hose to pump? CHECKED ALL OF THAT ..COULD NOT FIND ANY'YES THERE IS WAHT APPEARS TO BE A DEFLECTOR SEAL ON THE LID WAS GLUDED DOWN AND IS IN PLACE CLEARLY LEAKS FROM THE BOTTOM
  3. I should have said worn seal - I t was dripping just standing and it gushes with engine running and turning side to side
  4. GURUS! On my 63 R2 4 speed.. we replaced the oil pan gasket and rear main seal. I noticed some drippage from the power steering ram. Russ Ware had a completely rebuilt ram I purchased. We put it in the car and it leaked from the end of the Ram. Bob Halgren resealed it and it now appears to be fine at the end. HOWEVER, we had a large leak from the reservoir We removed it from the car and filled it with fluid and checked for any cracks on the bottom. None notice We removed the large 1 Inch bolt which holds the threaded stud and oval plate at the bottom of the reservoir and looked at the seals. One appeared to be torn., We replaced the seals with the flat rubber seals. We noticed the 2 holes on the base plate that the reservoir sits on are threaded – one to receive the bolt for the stud and nothing for the other hole. Appears to 5/8 x 18 fine thread. The workshop manual does not show another bolt. I seem to remember that the other hole had a filter on my other 1963 R1 Avanti How do we combat this leakage.?? We clearly are not getting the pressure to compress the seals to stop the leakage. It pours out at a pretty good rate. Bob Halgren gave me some thick round o rings.. could those be used. They are thick and round and the correct dimension Should we fit a bolt into the open hole and drill it to pass the fluid. Should we eliminate the seals and fashion a paper gasket? Should we use heavy round O rings? I am at a loss. I show a picture with a screw driver into the open threaded channel ` Thanks Keith
  5. I should have said worn seal - only one. As I mentioned the ram started to leak and that was repaired and then we noticed continued leak which we traced to the reservoir.. Down onto the inner fender and finally the floor. This R2 has air conditioning. Th battery is in the trunk and the power steering was moved over to where the long eee battery used to be, It has a custom bracket. We double checked all of the reservoir for leaks IT was dripping just standing and it gushes with engine running and turning side to side You can see it flowing out from above
