PITA C70 1998

Got it eventually. there wasn't really any crud in there, but I did clean it.
The O-ring was just being a pita. I think it swelled slightly.

I could slide the fitting in w/o the ring easily, and could fit the ring inside easily, but even with the o-ring installed into the solenoid housing, I still couldn't get the fitting to slide smoothly against the ring.

after some more lube, and finally getting the retainer plate in place, it finally seated itself.

Mr. 10mm was a nightmare - No amount of extensions or knuckles was quite adequate to get it to seat itself. There's just too much in the way. I finally got it started and eventually realized that it had cross-threaded...

Oh well. Have to take care of that later...

Took so long, I've postponed my planned T-Belt replacement again. It's got at least another 15-20k on it, so it's not critical today...
