What-a-bitch that P/S pump was. Today I make my time x 1.5 sooo I didn't rush anything. New pump is in, I did the recommended bleeding I found online about 4 times and I took it for a test drive. I don't want to say I'm 100% sure seeing it was a 5 minute drive, but I think its fixed. No steering pump noise, no belt squeaks, no pulling or wandering, and when I let go of the wheel it stayed straight. We'll find out Monday after driving it for an hour or so.
One of our other trucks had to be towed in yesterday. One of our brazil's was going up a pretty steep hill from a stoplight with the truck double overloaded with planks and at the 2-3 shift the truck turned off. (He said it just turned off....so he says) I checked it yesterday and it looks blown. Smoke coming out of the carburetor and when I try to start it, it cranks but wont turn over and makes a garble noise from the motor. We now have....1 truck that is road worthy out of 6, and we have 6 guys and we work on different jobs. Next week should be fun.
And on a side note, we were robbed again last night.
I think its someone trying to **** us, rather than steal our forms for scrap. They are only taking our corner setups and nothing more. They now stole all of our corners and W's that were at our shop, every one. Our next wall has 22 corners in it......
Called the cops, did the paperwork, assembled the other guys in the shop complex and talked. Cameras are going up and we are gonna all do random patrols. The plan is to not kill anyone over this.....but we're gonna break ******* legs.
