    Well. The torsion bar has to come off. Even with the engine jacked up all the way and pried all the way over I’m still about an inch short on room.

    Looks a little thin on the right hand side, but with some type sealer, it might be ok. I guess this means you got the pump off. LOL

      Well guys I made that new gasket and put it on the 21st. Hasn’t leaked since. Here’s a pic of the gasket:

      But today, on the 29th, I came home ready to work on my car and found this:

      apparently they’re tagging it to be towed for a leak it hasn’t had for over a week now. Great. And of course, the manager couldn’t be bothered to be in her office during her scheduled hours cause… ya know. Why would she? So 45 minutes before the office is supposed to close I got over there only to find she wasn’t there and I can’t tel her it doesn’t leak anymore. So now I’m trying to figure out whose house in my family I can park this thing at for a couple days until I get this sorted out with the manager. Yay me.
