Yeah! I always read the DIY pages, they help with learning this stuff sooo much. One on doing a tranny would be the motherload, I might even attempt rebuilding a tranny myself if I had a detailed DIY and the right tools....

Cameras mounted on tripods are great things too...have lots of light in the workspace and if necessary put a something over the button to keep it claen.

My camera has a remote control (like for a TV) so I just use that and wash it up when I am done.

It even zooms/focuses and everything...makes doing DIY a little easier...although as stated previous...its never easy

Or go as fancy as a camera on a tripod with motorized functions on voice command....so while your working you can look at a screen that previews the image it will take, then you can yell "zoom in! left! right!...up! down!!" "Take picture!!" that would be interesting......remotes work too. We have one of those.....very handy...

well, I took about 200 pictures when I rebuilt mine this summer. Partly because I have so many other things to do and partly because I don't have any experience with doing a proper write-up, I haven't. But I did learn a few things in doing it as far as sources for parts and special tools I made or did without in a simple way. Somehow I'd try to get off my *** and put a few things together.

Well its not the most exciting subject (aux Water Pump)

But I guess if i post a DIY to double your horsepower and double your mpg by using only a set of vise grips and a monkey wrench, I'd get more interest!

Trust me when someone finds out they have a failed Aux water pump thats when they have the interest....do it...how many people read through a how-to for replacing rear suspension bushings unless they need to do it...make it up becasue at some point it will be exactly what someone is looking for.

I think you did an outstanding job documenting a rebuild for one of these pumps. I think I've got an old one somewhere. I hope I didn't toss it in the trash. I remember messing with it earlier this year but I never got around to opening it. Maybe mine didn't have the long screws.
Does it make such a big difference if you have a working one or not? I've read somewhere that a bad one can fry to climate control head. In one of my cars I just keep it disconnected because I have a feeling it's about to go out. I haven't noticed any difference in heat inside the car.

It made quite a difference on my SD. I did something similar to what Rich did to mine to get it to work. Actually, I took one out of my parts car and it was beat too. I fixed both so now I have a spare. I believe I posted a couple of pics, back last winter.

I referenced it for you over on another page.

I would say your work has been (and will continue to be) very useful
