    The return line fitting rusted out and needs replacement. I need some Help/Advice to
    repair the problem. The car is in the driveway on jack stands and I would like to start on it
    but need some information on how to do it. Thanks Joe O

    For the short term you can loop/bypass the cooler.

    The problem is the return line fitting is rusted out and needs to be replaced.
    How do I drop the steering rack enough to replace the part? Thanks Joe O

    Basically... suspend the engine and drop the front cradle/suspension.
    You can do a search on here and I know you will find a write up on it.
    Better change the pressure line as well.
    Change the gasket on the oil filter adapter, a little easier with the cradle dropped.
    Check your oil pan and gasket. If you even think it could possibly maybe be leaking change that as well.
    This is quite the job...
