Make sure those fittings have the olive in them for the Teflon line. If they do not they're just an an hose end which will not work for power-steering applications. That is the correct line for power steering though.

What's the story on the ImportImage Racing lines? I need new lines and for the same price of building one I might as well buy one already assembled... does it come with everything necessary for install?

thanks.

Tired of the constant power steering line leaking, I pulled the P&L line off my car. Low and behold, I went through this thread and realized that they forgot 1 piece in the kit they sent me.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EA...0&autoview=sku

I never had this piece to begin with. The stock flared line poked right through the end on the 6AN fitting. Wow! Crap! Fudge! Bull****!

Has anyone had any issues with the pre-fab'd p/s lines? I got mine installed and when I'm at an idle I can hear a loud humming sound. No air in my lines and it stops when I turn my steering wheel. It's really just annoying...

I finally got around to pulling out my old rack (which was beyond busted).

Unfortunately, the reman'd rack didn't come with the hardlines that go from the rack, and poke out just above the crossmember.

I could reuse the pressure side line, but not the return line.

Does anyone know what size fitting to use, to plug right in to the rack itself?

Essentially, I need to build part "15" in this picture:


Here's the page if the pic doesn't work: Link to original page with picture

Any help would be hot. I can't think of a local place to take this in to, and have them measure it/give me a line that'll work.

I replaced both the high pressure and return with some premade teflon/steel braided lines from summit.

I'm having some trouble with the return line . I have the older style pump with the reservoir that sits on top. I can fit a 3/8 heater hose over the return line nipple on the res but I can't for the life of me slip the 6AN braided line over it.

I thought the ID of 6AN is 3/8? Is the rigidity of the line not allowing it to get on there? I'm thinking of getting a 3/8 hose barb coupler to go from the braided line -> coupler -> 3/8 heater hose -> reservoir nipple. But I'm wondering if the barb coupler will be the same size as the return nipple on the reservoir, leaving me in the same boat.

Any advice is appreciated, and please forgive my mechanical newbness, thanks.

I got one of the P&L lines. Do I need to put Teflon tape or something on the fitting that goes between the rack fitting and the SS line down by the up-pipe? I just want to make sure it wont leak.

The inside diameter on a Pushloc (heater hose) style hose is larger than on a re-usable (steel braid) hose. That's where your having issues. They're not designed to be interchangeable.

This has been installed on my car for most of the summer but I seem to have a pretty good whine in my power steering system. It makes a pretty significant noise while turning and stuff. The system operates perfectly (buttery smooth) but it leaves me wondering if there's air in there. I have driven over 1000 miles so its had plenty of time to self bleed.

Giving this thread new life.
Any thoughts about this Unisteer -6/14x1.5 Banjo fitting. Could it be used directly on the pump instead of the adapter?
