Removing the power steering pump

Simone had to work today so I drove down to my Mustang and work on the fuel pump. I had a lot of time so I thought I'd retry replacing the fuel pump. And what a nice opportunity to see both my cars ;-) I gotta say, I like them both a lot.

Today's target area. The power steering pump sits right above the fuel pump. Since I don't have a means of getting under the car in a safe manner, I'm going in from above which means I need to move one pump out of the way to get to the other...

Well, moving the power steering pump was very easy. I then took the rubber fuel hose off and replaced it with a new one. This was a bit of a frustrating job coz the hose was 8mm which is a tad small but in the end I got it hooked up to the main fuel line.

And then I found out I needed wrenches in inches and not in millimeters... So I could not remove the fuel pump. Need to get a new set of wrenches first... To be continued.

The online banker

We visited my mom and dad tonight. My mom was doing some online banking, I was impressed and also a bit proud :-)

Masterchef Australia

I was watching Masterchef Australia which I usually do if it's on :-)

I love this show. It's always so positive I think.

The new gasket

The Chevy was still parked outside when I left this morning. So here's a better picture. It's not my favourite car...

I went to the doctor for me knees and nose. It's close to my old digs. I used to live in the apartment with the lights on, one up.

After work I picked my car up from the garage. I had a new head gasket installed. Very fucking expensive, doubled the price of the car...

Eva's soft toy

Construction in front of the HEMA headoffice is going strong.

People must be getting sick of all the cyclists in front of the IJ-kantine. They have now put big obstacles in their way but I don't think it helps all that much...

In the evening I visited my friend Eva who is now about 8 months pregnant. Ze made this little soft toy herself. I think it's very cool :-)

I found this parked infront of my house when I got home. It's a Chevrolet Impala wagon from 1977 I believe. Nice!

10.000 or so pictures

Like I said.

I've been rather busy this week with all the DIY at home. Also at work. So I keep forgetting to make pictures. Maybe it's a sign that this blog is running towards its end, who knows.

I've made around 3.000 posts now. That's gotta be over 10.000 pictures over the past 8 years.

The cupboard

That looks like.... IKEA! AGAIN!

Back at home I put together a cupboard from leftover boards for in the back shed. Worked out very nice. Milan helped my putting it together. He did well :-)


And then I baked us all pancakes.
