Re: Am I totally Screwed?

just finished this task, that hole goes down to the finely machined rotor surface, don't screw it up, the main Oring between the hyd head and the housing is probable what leaks, not the banjo. You can do this job yourself in a day with just wrenches and sockets. No need for recalibration/timing etc.

Bad news is the banjo probably never had to be removed.

Re: Am I totally Screwed?

I'm waiting for the OP to man up and do the job or pay someone. I'd have paid by now. I can't stop thinking about the water running down on the injector pump with the bolts out of it. That would have ruined my day. Hope we get an update.
