The red fluid on the steering components is probably ATF (automatic transmission fluid). I've found that if you use it in your power steering it will cause premature leaks. It's thinner than p/s...

One more question. I told the machinist to get 9.5 to 1 compression pistons. The block was out of a '74 wag. The pistons I got are dished. Shouldn't they be flat tops?

Is your float bowl going dry? Maybe you have to crank it so much because the pump is filling it up.

I've had problems with the push-on terminals on this jeep. The one on the oil pressure sender was making my gauge go to zero at cruise. I'll try changing them out to the better connectors tomorrow....

Crazyjeepman, does that include a core charge? I mean would it be cheaper if you sent them your old cover? A brand new one only costs about $270.
