This falls under the category of If I had to do again I could do it in 1
hour rather than the 4 and 3 trips to sears tool counter.
Recently 200q20v started using large amounts of CHF. Like I am SURE I
filled that 20 min ago. . . The pump to rack high pressure hose was
leaking. The rack end was bolted on in a downward angle (there is a little
freedom in how it is positioned) and it was rubbing on a black rod.
The problem was removing/installing the 17mm bolt on the rack. The solution
was removing the reservoir and bracket to get some access and purchasing a
3/4" box end ratchet (17mm not available?!). There was just enough
clearance for the wrench to click once. Oh and needed an extender to get
some leverage - home made out of angle iron and a bolt.
Had I only noticed that hose was chafing. . .
