I constructed a hydro pump a number of years ago using the above website and at first using it was a learning experience, but it ended up working great. It can be a little messy if you don't pay close attention. After 8 yrs. of not using it, I recently retrained myself quickly to pump up one side of my '71 S and all went pretty well. Randy

The're are a couple of questions that come to my mind. When was the last time you serviced the suspension parts on that side front and back. And what is your skill set to delve into the problem.

Two questions regarding our '69 Cooper S!  Of course it is a wet suspension with a little problem!  The left front knuckle joint is out of place, the mental piece on the bottom of the joint is facing me as I look at it.  It should be vertical with the remainder of the system.  Any words of wisdom on how to attack the situation?

Several years ago I read an article regarding turning a hand grease gun into a hydro pump!  Can't remember where I saw it nor how to make it.
Has anyone done this to a grease gun?
