suzitoo is disabled for an oil pump replacement.
i ran her to san diego and back, to see if anything would break.
i had installed an oil pressure gauge, and realized that the pressure drops when the motor warms up.
i removed the oil pan, and tried to free the pressure relief valve in the pump, but the piston was frozen in a "venting" position.
the pump is driven by the crank, so i had to re-visit my failed attempt at removing the gorilla installed bolt on the crank.
i made a tool.

worked like it should have(this is much easier then trying to jam the flywheel), and i found why the gorilla was concerned- the sprocket keyway is damaged(on the crank nose), and an odd sized key had been glued into the crank.
i will replace the pump, and put her back together.
still working on some rocker protection and rear bumper.
got a new fishing pole to play with.


'94 "tracker", with some parts from suzi the psychic.
other modifications made, with more to come.
some intentional.
suzitoo should get me fishing.
