Just enjoying breakfast outside before I go into the garage and get hot and cranky. Looked at it last night again and everything lines up except the pp. Jim I see that washer you are talking about. I'll take the pump out and look it all over again and see if anything pops out at me. One more question though. I installed my new front calipers reversed and have put them back correctly "with the bleeder up" now It wont bleed. I am guessing the proportioning valve is closed so that the whole system will not fail. How do I get that centered again? It is a aftermarket disc set.

Check out this YouTube video. It may help and you can start from there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=qPLaPv8DITE

Well Jim, this video showed me I should probably read the directions first. I removed the bleed plug before bleeding thinking it was a shipping plug along with the rest. Its has been disposed of. Come to find out those are going for $14.00. Anyway I emailed the company asking for the easiest way to center the pin. Mean while I'll Google some more. Maybe I'll find a easier solution which might be buying another one. Thanks

I fought similar problem, turns out I needed the 4 inch water pump not the 4.5. I fought this for days before changing water pump and now everything lines up.

Good luck,

LOL. You are learning my way. Never read directions, dig right in, pull stuff apart because we are "guys", then scratch your head trying to figure out why things just are not working. And never admit you did not read the instructions, rather, tell everyone that you did not understand them as they were written, they just were not clear enough!

You should be able to get the bleeder valves from most auto parts stores on their Help tree of parts.

Also t
Here is a small bolt nut and a thick washer on the very bottom right side. (As you are in the drivers seat) of all that
Bracetry, ...the washer is a thick black spacer and as I recall it goes in between the two brackets....if you put it back or front it will misalign the pulley as I recall. I had to always put the car on the lift to get to that nut easily,....not sure I can see it in the photos...

It is the lowest and farest adjustment , where the two bracket ends meet.....

That is why I went to serpentine belt!
