Re-installed motor, lost hydraulics (brakes, steering)
2000 7.3 auto F250:
over the past few days, I've pulled the motor out of my truck to replace the oil pump and injectors, I had a hiccup or two along the way, I'm planning on doing a bit of a write up, or lessons learnt thingy.
Anyways, on the the post-op testdrive (after dark, so I didn't do much diagnosing), my hydraulics are crap. Hard steering and bad brakes. I left the power steering connected while pulling the motor. Could it just be an air bubble that worked it's way to the cylinder? Or is there yet another fan dangled electric sensor? are the brakes and pwr steering fluid resevoirs connected?
