Power steering line and guage install story

So on Wed. I picked up a pyro guage and was going to hook it up that night. So driving back from the shop i got it from i went into a gas station to get a drink and when i turned my truck around i herd a loud pop. So i popped the hood and i was pissing powersteering fluid all over. So i drove over to my storage unit that was a mile down the road and started pulling the line off. I had the radio on and then i hear that there is a SERVERE thunderstorm coming in the next 10 min. So i have my buddy go pick up a new line and fluid while i pull the old one off. I pulled my truck in 1/2 into my unit and whent to town wrenching the old one out and putting the new one in, as im tightning the last fitting its starts POURING bad. So i lucked out and just got done in time, It was only 7pm so we started installing my pyro guage. Im under the truck drilling the manifold and my buddys starting the wireing and im drilling VERY slow and just make it through the manifold when the bit snapps and is in the manifold. So then we start wrenching away and pull the manifold which takes us a good little while. We finnaly get it off and thread it and then reinstall it back in the truck. So we wrapped up this project at 4am and had to be to work at 7 so it was a bad day lol. I just got my exaust in today but i figured im gonna take a break from wrenching for this weekend and drive home
