Hydraulic pump update

F600 JVJ is back on the road with a GBP100 + VAT second-hand pump from
Halls of Hucknall.  After seeing their name so much, I didn't expect
the place to be so small.

My own pump is in kit form, and is currently with Rugby Motor Engineers
for the bearing to be pressed out by their superior equipment.  Once
that's done, I'll change the bearing and fit Audi's rebuild kit.

I was quite surprised at how long the drained high pressure line took
to fill.  I carefully primed the pump and had to top up the reservoir
twice, but it was over a minute before the brake warning light went out.

It behaves normally now - 39 brake depressions to exhaust assist, and
pressure restores within five seconds.
