First thing I found was that a new control arm had been installed. I didn't know the old repaired control arm had been replaced. Turns out I was stupid for buying one. However, this was on flea bay free return policy. Unless someone needs one and wishes to buy this one.
The sump looks fairly clean. I think just a little flushing is all that is needed. I think I saw a How To on this.
OK, what I noticed is that when operating the easy touch control, I have to have the control lever just about to the top before the valve at the pump starts to move. I wouldn't think this was normal; is it?
