Thanks for the kind words!Nice car Josh. Good luck getting her in ship shape.
Ok great, I will try and find the thread. I pick up the brake hose tomorrow morning. Cheap check to see if that is the issue. But I feel like I need to start learning how to fix and clean the ABS solenoids in the mean time lol.had exactly same issue. i had both seized calipers (diagnosed from inability to push the caliper piston back in) and also my abs solenoid to front right was seized. if u search cf, there is a pretty easy way to pull it apart and clean the solenoids and that fixes it.
Hi @VikingTrad3r I've done some searching on CF and not sure if I've found the right thread or not. Sounds like the ABS Modulator Pump is not very serviceable, but can be cleaned/flushed.had exactly same issue. i had both seized calipers (diagnosed from inability to push the caliper piston back in) and also my abs solenoid to front right was seized. if u search cf, there is a pretty easy way to pull it apart and clean the solenoids and that fixes it.
Boom! Awesome, just what I'm looking for. You the man. Thanks!here u go my friend:

Here we go, about to
Great thinking on finding a matching bolt to clean the threads. We will do that.Wow. I absolutely commend your work so far. Looks very clean. Well done.
So the issue you are having with getting all the nuts rethreaded is exaclty what I experienced. I spent at least 3 hours in futility. It was very VERY frustrating.
I had really hoped that the advice about not bolting it all down would allow you the wiggle room to wiggle the pump body as you rethreaded and you would avoid what i experienced.
So.....I assume that you tried un-doing all the other lines, and starting with your trouble line? I assume that you removed the pump body and inspected the threads to ensure that there is no crossing threading? If I recall correctly what eventually worked for me, was to remove the pump, find a thread pitch that matched, run it into first 4 or so threads to "clean them" and then when I put it back in i installed that one first, and the rest went in.
As long as you havn't forced it with a wrench and caused a cross, you can get this done. If I did reeeaaaalllyyy far back in my brain i think its possible that i used a thread tap that matched the thread to "clean" or "chase" the threads. Available in a kit at Canadian Tire or Amazon very cheap. But! Simply finding a bolt that matches the thread pitch would work too. You could take the pump into home depot and find the screw that matches, or look online at see what the thread pitch/size is for brake line fittings too.
You can definitely get it done.
how about shocking it?Ya, we can get air through the Rear and Front Left solenoids.
Sounds like that is our best option. Just keep hitting it with air and brake cleaner and anything else we can think of.
Ya could try shocking it. I can hear and feel the solenoid click, so I don't think it's jammed. Most likely tiny debris got past the screens and clogged up, but I'm still just guessing based on what we know.how about shocking it?
all you need is the solenoid right?
id have an old one here.
