    Well that sucks, but looking at that list most of it is just bad luck except the head bolts.

    I have a similar list but over a couple of seasons, hang in there it will get better.

    My power steering pump seized and blew they cap off a weeks ago leaving about a quart of hot hydraulic oil everywhere. Went and ordered a higher performance one last monday with the promise it would be shipped that day. Needless to say I didn't get it, so Friday I borrowed one and installed that. It threw the belt off every time I ran over 4k.

    Full hydraulic steering with two rams sucks without the pump
