Power Steering Pump

Next stop Las Vegas, where we found a power-steering pump at one AutoZone and the required pulley puller at another. Driving through Vegas traffic with no power steering or brakes is fun, especially in the desert heat with a manual transmission. The swap went relatively easy, no one got hurt or burnt and I found the culprit to be a stuck piston in the power-steering pump, most likely due to a small piece of dirt, a very good reason to add a filter to the steering system.
