    We ended up peening the flow control washer in place. I took pictures. I'll try and post them tonight with more details.

    but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    Uh, hmm, well, uh, I don't know where he's not. It wouldnít be inaccurate to assume that I couldnít exactly not say that it is or isnít almost partially incorrect. Oh, on the contrary. I'm possibly more or less not definitely rejecting the idea that in no way with any amount of uncertainty that I undeniably do or do not know where he shouldnít probably be, if that indeed wasnít where he isnít. Even if he wasnít at where I knew he was, thatíd mean Iíd really have to know where he wasn't.

    What do you mean you haven't had any problems since? Have you disassembled the w/p to make sure the reducer cone's cutting of the housing is within spec limits?

    If the cone came out, it's broken. You can't just toss it in there and expect it to stay in place. It will swirl around with the impeller, cutting up the housing (loading your coolant with metal flakes) and wearing down your impeller (if it's plastic... it put a nice polish on my metal impeller).

    Ok,
    Well I didn't have the time or the money to let the car sit for a week. My dad is a 30+year Certified Mechanic on short term retirement, he sold his shop. He said it's common on all alluminum housings to peen things into place. The picture below shows what we did with a round nose punch.

    Keep us updated on how that works out. Looks like it should be fine.

    I've done this on two different housings and both work fine. Save your money and re-peen it in place.
