Urgent Steering box advice !?!
CJ7 RHD... power steering... sort of...
My steering box has been recently 'fixed' by Dave Sargent in Doncaster [don't ever go there]....
He really has fixed it good and propper because today it stopped dripping ATF and absolutely pissed it out [luckily just when i had got home].
The question is - can i still drive it DRY ? or will i be causing a bigger problem than what i believe it is at present [blown seal on the box].
If i were to top it up - it would be empty again in 1-2 mins... so that not much of an option. Plan B is - i hear you can mix 1/2 brake fluid and ATF for a wicked cocktail of "seal enlarging" gloop that may temporarily reseal it - but i doubt that would work with this one.
The thing is - i am moving house in 2 days and need it... and i dont have the time nor £ to get it recon'd by Friday !! Argh.
