    FE35 starter motor

    New 4.2kw starter left mine on the button. The starter seemed lazy and more cranking then brings new battery down too. She now fires up immediately and no stress on battery. Should have done it years ago. Its hard to beat a good sharp crank starting any diesel engine.

    Power steering leak

    There is no o ring inside it. Are you saying mine should have one where the inner pipe seats on the pump. The man I bought the pump off screwed the elbow out so I never seen it or if he lost it. Is it just an o oil ring.

    Power steering leak

    How do I stop it leaking here at this elbow. The nut is sealing ok against the pump, it is leaking inside the nut. The inner elbow tightens up if I turn it slightly further but then doesn't line up with the pipe. When I line it up with pipe it then leaks. This is a new pump.
