871 Parts needed - stupid stuff
« on: May 06, 2014, 07:50:48 PM »
Pushing around the engine on the dolly I broke the front pulley. Is this a vibration dampener? Does anybody have a good one to sell?

Also the power steering tank has leaked for years. I've tried repairing it but never succeed. Does anybody have one of those?

That is just a pulley not a vibration dampener one of the MCI guys will need to help you with that one I don't have a  Nelson power steering tank but it shouldn't be hard to find new or used

 I broke that pulley on my 4-71 on the Courier 96. I took it to this good welder, he said he could weld it. I said isn't it cast? He said yea, so! Anyway, it was good and probably still is.

Hi Fredward,

That looks like an excellent power steering fluid tank.  Has all the correct fittings, mounting, etc.

Remove it, grind off the 'bubble-gum' and, have your welder seal it up.  Minor job.

My pulley has a small piece that was broken out and repaired at one time, how long ago? no idea, but we have had the bus for almost 11 years. :)
