Boy we have had some beautiful weather lately to finish out the week. It may be finally drying up enough I can even get some trail riding in this weekend.

Been a rough but mostly productive day. Set out to rebuild the valve on my whole-home water filter. Thought I had bought everything I needed ahead of time but found a check valve that wasn't expected and needed to be replaced. Guy I bought the setup from was open but is approximately 35 miles away so headed over to get the valve. Got within about 5 miles of his shop and the clutch pedal in my daily driver lost all pressure. Had to slam it into gear and limp into a parking lot. Checked fluid levels and for leaks and didn't see anything. My guess is it's probably a master or slave cylinder. Called insurance and got a tow and then called my wife to come pick me up. Waited for 1.5 hours for the tow truck to get there and get him squared away on where to take it. Wife runs me to the water filter shop which luckily we make with 30 minutes to spare before they close. Get home and then do a marathon to finish rebuilding the valve, roll the tank (full of water and 40# of carbon) out of the well house, strap it to a dolly and then get it on an incline where I can empty the water and old carbon out of it. Once done flushing got it filled with new carbon and installed well filter valve/control head then back in well house and plumbed back into service valve. What a day, I'm beat!!!!

So my friends came up and we messed around with the samurai. We tried a mishimoto power steering reservoir that claimed to have 1/2” inlets and outlets. Which is way too big for the outlet but the replacement bars didn’t come in the mail so we used the tracker reservoir and stretched some softer hose that had come off a power steering setup from a parts rig. Drove about 20 miles and that hose failed. Was fun while it lasted.
