I had problems getting the pivot pin out on mine. the inside was all burred up. Finally got it. Mine was filthy. Since you're doing both, you will have to balance it for sure. be sure and read the directions carefully. when you first start it and barely touch the steering wheel, it throw you out of the seat if you're not careful. You'll see. Took me a few tries as I'm sure I had air in the lines. Use the instructions at CSSBINC. it was very helpful.

looks very familiar. Luckily I had an old 1.5 gallon icecream container to put it all in and I have it a real good bath with parts cleaner.

Smiley Godverdomme kutzooi!!
This weekend I wanted to mount the powersteering stuff, but I couldn't mount the slave cylindre. The crown nut used to mount to the steering rod is fuc.ed up. In the whole area there is no shop who sell these nuts. That's the dark side of the corvette, it's all about non metric measures.

Theo, that really SUCKS!!!  Guess it comes with the territory of having a U.S. car (especially a Corvette) in a foreign country. Sad  Hope you are able to fix the problem. Wink

That's the problem with working on things that haven been touched in a while. You always tend to damage or break something. I never mentioned that on mine the rod kept turning so I had to cut the nut off to remove it. Luckily, Ace hardward carries pretty much all sizes in grade 8 so that was just a 15min drive.

The nut was damaged during removal slave cylindre some weeks ago. I called a vette supplier here in the Netherlands, he will sent me a good used one for free Smiley So, tomorrow or wednesday I can move on.
