You said about pump breaking? I think the pumps are interchangeable. Swap headlight pump for main or back window to get the main pump working.

It was the ring where the pump connects to the tank that went all Aloha Snack bar after I gently removed it like a kid on benadryl.

Found out why I blew the hose off the new expansion tank....

The o-ring under this beveled washer was crap and as I found out that when I put it back on I smashed it and it allows pressure behind the bevel and overcame the spring clip upon shutdown. (Ask me how I know)

I just cut it off and put a screw clamp on until I get my replacement hose this week but on the bright side my heavy duty expansion tank is rated for 7.5 bar

2200 last night the courier showed up and I got my new hose it was Trucktec so total cost came to 39 USD.

I used some (baby constipation med) pure glycerin as lubricant for the o-rings.

Don't tell my wife...

After the hose repairs I took her out and stretched her legs 208kph and no tickets (so far) but I got an implausible air intake error (only after high rpm runs) anyone have an idea why?

@EOD; when posting photos with tapatalk, resize them to medium; stupidly it means you must post one picture at a time.. I can only see about 1/3 of your photos on my laptop
