I was just messing with you. It would be interesting to see though.

There are two ways to show pics on here. One is to upload them here then use the "FORUM CODES" to post the pic in the thread, or upload them to a place like tinypic.com and then just post the link that has [IMG] at both ends in the thread. Then the pics show up when you post.

Yes it is. I need to work on my steering box because I think it's leaking. I can't tell really because, my pump leaks too and the fan blows all that back onto the frame and the box. I just haven't replaced it yet, I keep adding fluid every so often! LOL

did you try cleaning the whole area, and running it for a few minutes turning the wheel lock to lock and looking for a more specific area? $4 for degreaser and half an hour could do wonders.

No I haven't, but I need to. It just hasn't been on the top of my list, but it's getting closer.
