Well i ended up using JB weld to fill the crevice and i smoothed it with a die grinder. Put the Correct 0-ring on and it dosent leak at all now! I was really excited about that. Ran the rubicon saturday and it worked great. Wow jb weld does wonders. :)
WOW! i mean really wow..that is amazing....  :suprised:

I know that it probley leaked from that but it was also because i was running the wrong 0-ring before. I used jb weld on my t-case to fill cracks and it still dosent leak. haha

awesome write up, made tapping my box a breeze. took about 3hours from start to finish which includes running around looking for drill bit that was worth a damn. Ive never been inside a toy box either so it was new.

either way it was easy. I have yet to get it on the truck and pumping fluid but hopefully all is well.

Freds40,

Have you ever had any issues with the fitting on top of the box not being able to thread in very much since the tap can't go that deep. I have done a couple of boxes and wish the fitting went in deeper than 3 threads. I am working on another one now and I am going to use a second tap after running the first one that bottoms out. My second tap will be from the same maufacturer, but I am going to shave off 1/4" from the tap. Hopefully this will allow me to use the wider part of the tap and be able to get the fitting to screw in more than 3 threads. If I get 4 or five I will be very happy. Especially if it does not leak.

I know it can happen. When I do mine I run the drill bit to the very bottom of the vein. Then run the tap in as tight as possible. I can usually get 4-5 threads to grab. When I have done Sag boxes, I have used a second ground tap to get it in deeper.

Use your regular tap, and then use a bottoming tap, which doesn't have a taper to it.  This will give you full-depth threads.  ;)

Fred, is the 4cyl pump the same as the V6 pump?  I have the V6 and was wondering if the process for drilling the restrictor is the same.

The v6 pump I worked on had two small holes in the restrictor instead of one from the factory. In trying to knock out the restrictor to figure out how to drill it, I ended up puching a hole between the two holes accidently. So I ended up with one large hole. For some reason the restrictor would not come out by lightly tapping it out. It ended up working out just fine.

Good luck

Same happened here. I tried punching it out and it broke out. Been running it for a long time with no problems. Works great

If you didn't want to run assist could you just drill the restricter on the pump to get stronger power steering?

The 9-4410-06 Cylinder is out of stock indefinitely at Surplus Center.  What are some other places to get cylinders online???

That sucks. I bought one just a month or so back. Check out Northern Tool. They should have a 6" stroke 1.5" cylinder.

anyone drill and tap the box without taking it apart? seems like it would work if you just took your time drilling it out....like keep blowing the chips away and put some grease on the end of the drill bit and tap to grab the chips. Also use a s strong magnet by your drill bit to grab the chips as well.

I'm just worried about not getting it back together correctly that's all and a few small chips can't make that big of a deal.

I have done 3 of them. I can tell you that there is no way of doing it with out having chips stuck inside. Go ahead and do it if you want. Please post up after at least 1000 miles and let us know how it turned out.

hahaha sooo i took it apart today after work and it ya it was a joke BUT on re-assembly i hooked that teflon ring and split SO i just tried to put it back together until i can order the seal (which i hope you can) but i couldn't get the teeth on the input thingy to be in the right phase to mesh with the teeth on the slector shaft....when i put the slector shaft back in it would twist the other piece side ways. After 4 tries and the seal breaking i had enough and left it until tomorrow.

There has to be an easier way to make sure that input shaft is in the right phase because if it moves and turns on you your deffently going to tear that seal.
