When I get really, really close I can see right through them! That would make them leak, right? Actually, I don't know what the problem is, but I'll go look at the two pictures again.

Maybe something from that pump can be used to change the flow regulation on the one you've got?

Okay, I get it! Well, if you get a Mobius belt, it might work...

I should spell it right: Moebius. You know what a Moebius strip is? If not, sorry, bad topological joke.

Some metal will eventually end up in there due to wear -- but a lot of shavings might explain the pumps poor performance for sure. I hope it's the impeller and not the housing that's worn.

Zach,

I honestly believe that your troubles either are due to a bad pump, not having high steer, or a combination of both. Over the past few days I have been mindful of how my steering is at any given point and it really performs flawlessly. When I originally decided on hydro-assist, I consulted Jey about the performance given the extra component to the system (the ram). He mentioned a couple things that led me to ponder certain upgrades such as a better, higher-flow pump and a larger reserviour. However I soon realized he was dealing with a 3.0 and not a 4.0, so both parts (pump and reserviour) are different.. namely the reserviour, which is an integrated part of the pump in the 3.0's as opposed to the external's on the 4.0's which are larger by nature (a problem he had was too small a reserviour, which acted against him in two ways: when the ram was fully extended, the system was starved for fluid, and likewise when it was fully compressed the reserviour would overflow).

Anyhow, just my $.05 worth!

Oh i dont disagree, about the highsteer. I am just going to wait as i am getting closer and closer to getting my D44 done. I did some work to the lines today and it seems to be somewhat better but not perfect.

im still gonna mess with the pump just out of curiosity. :)
