JA: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?
Customer: yes. all the above :(
JA: Are you fixing your 9-5 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: the green "umbrella valves" are in their correct position as well.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: i put a "breather kit on it" (where the hose runs down to let the oil on the ground OR catch can) and it got worse.

did you install "new in box" HD cylinders and pistons?

did they come as a piston/cylinder kit?

did you check the bore with a dial bore gauge?

tell me everything you can.
