So ...

Re: wash pump wire connection, no live feed

I think you might be right about the switch Rob, I re-positioned the back wire onto the purple side of the power source, then my multi meter shows power on the black wire at the switch, but nothing on the red wire at the switch when the ignition is on, so you hit the nail on the head with it being a...

Re: Pickup restoration part three

the button for the power wash wipe, finally fits the hole, I wrapped my largest drill bit in wet and dry and spun it in the hole making it larger so the button finally slipped in with a click, now to wire it up to the pump motor and the fuse in the main bus. http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f327/da...

Re: Pickup restoration part three

cleaning up the master cylinder and the hole it sits in inside the chassis, I'm aware that most of the debris down inside this hole is in actual fact the remains of the top coat of paint blistered off by the spillages of brake fluid. The red primer does seem to have been protected by the top coat an...

Re: Pickup restoration part three

well without doubt my master cylinder needs a deep clean, but when I replaced the cap and watched for leaks while pressing the brake pedal nothing leaked out, the oil in the chassis was spillages caused while topping up, but still the pool on the garage floor was joined by another flow, and here's t...

Re: Pickup restoration part three

bleeding the brakes, and with every depression of the pedal I could hear a squerting noise coming from the master cylinder, then I noticed this huge puddle developing underneath the front axle stands, directly below the front chassis leg. http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f327/davidsidebottomsquarep...

Re: Pickup restoration part three

this might not be everyone's cup of tea, but after so many failures I decided to motorize the windscreen wash pump, a kit from ESM, so far Ive wired the earth between the clean metal washers of the pump mount, connected the hoses up, just the lead to the switch and then on to the power. http://i50.p...
