Colbalt, nice to hear from you.

1. Yes it's a nice set-up indeed. When the ps is not all over it. To clarify, after it was cleaned this time - I place dry paper towels around the fittings and another behind the pulley of the p.s. I added some fluid to the empty res and after running it while turning stop to stop it leaked around the shaft seal. I initially thought it was fibers off the paper towel, but realized it was fine oil being slung around from the pulley.
Belt tension is good. Just got her off the dyno yesterday (and they had no issues). Belt had to be snugged after the pulls, but seems good now.
2. Alignment was check when belt was snugged up.
3. No P/S cooler.
4. Line sizes are hp and have #6 to 1/2-20 Inverted Flare, [IMG][/IMG]3/4" nut not sure of the exact size...see pics
5. Rear press./bypass spring came assembled. Not sure if it matches the steering box gear...never dug that deep.
