    Saco Steering Rack Issues

    All beam cars are. Also most, if not all, Buckshot cars are rear steer. I don't know why anyone building an a-arm car would design it to be rear steer though.

    Saco Steering Rack Issues

    It is mounted up side down because it is meant for a rear steer application. Mounted like this the sand getting into the rack is a concern.

    Jacuzzi question

    The difference between putting new guts in a 3-way valve or just o-rings is that putting new o-rings only will seal the valve from sucking air or leaking water to/from the outside. Water can still bypass the valve between all pipes which doesn't matter in certain valve locations in the system. Locations that we can't have water bypass between the pipes need to have the "guts" or diverter replaced.

    Jacuzzi question

    If you show a picture of the valves it would hep. I am assuming you have 2 valves in front of the pump. If there is 2 the one closest to the inlet of the pump "divides" the spa main drain lines from the pool skimmer and cleaner lines that are tied to the other valve. If this valve ,the one closest to the pump, leaks it will let water from the spa main drains leak into the pool. This valve should have the guts replaced, the easiest way to do this is to buy an new valve and put all the guts in the old valve. The other valve in front of the pump that divides the skimmer and cleaner lines only needs the o-rings replaced. If there is only 1 valve in front of the pump put guts in it. More than likely there is only 1 3-way valve and a check on the return side coming out of the heater. If the check valve is in-line with one of the pipes going into the ground after the 3-way, which is the spa return line, replace the check valve guts and put an o-ring kit in the 3-way valve. If the check valve is in an equalizer pipe that connects the 2 pipes that go into the ground after the 3-way valve put the guts in the check valve and guts in the 3-way valve.

    It depends on how the system is plumbed. The three-way valve that is closest to the inlet of the pump can definitely cause it. Depending on how the return side is plumbed, the valve that is on the outlet of the heater, can also cause it. If one valve is leaking it's time to rebuild them all. I would highly advise putting complete new guts in the valve closest to the inlet of the pump and the one on the outlet of the heater.

    Jacuzzi question

    Replace the guts of the check vale and rebuild or replace the guts of the 3-way valves. On the valves there are 3 o-ring you can purchase in a kit and replace or purchase new valves and use all the guts out of it. Make sure to use lube intended for pools and not petrolium based when you reasemble.
