I don't spell well

Default Aftermarket Power Steering Lines - Which one can be routed along the frame?

Are any of the pre-made ones long enough to route along the frame and out of they way?

I've been looking for days and can't find the answer.

Thanks

Just get a 14mm banjo to 4-6an male and whatever length braided stainless line you need with a pre-made end. Then the adapter fitting to the rack...or the proper pre-made end on the SS-line for the rack.

The return line can be anything that is trans/oil/fuel friendly

Yup.....

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1225267

Its all in this thread....the Summit links are all dead, but the last page I think has all the fitting bits in it in one post or another, with good pics.


Try contacting this guy on eBay. IMO he is making them himself. Just measure what you need and ask for a longer line and your done

same guy....

Thanks for that info. I read through that thread and there was some discussion about the steering rack fitting that seemed to indicated that you need to spin it on a lathe to get a proper fit. but then there was some confussion and I don't know what happened at the end.

Also, do you need a new 0-ring? Of so, what kind? 1.5x10mm?

O-ring = yes...the kind is trans/PS fluid friendly. I just used the size that was a fit in comparison to the one on the rack from my big O-ring kit. That bit about the lathe business is not correct since its a O-ring fitting not a compression/flare fitting.

The first time I did it I took my rack to a local high pressure hose supply place and they figure out the rack thread patterns and I got the fittings through them.

RACK FITTING = male -6 AN to female 14mm x 1.5 O-ring
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ea...herl/overview/



14mm banjo many will come with a bolt but use the stock PS bolt as I believe its a 14x1.25 not the more common 14x1.5 thread



Any female ended -6an high pressure ( 1000psi+ ) braided line. I used a NOS line for my PS setup.

In the end your looking at like $70ish with shipping for everything....?

Dude, thank you for the help!

Looks like I can also combine those pieces you pointed out with a prebuilt fragola line:
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/fra-370060
Which you can get in 48",60" or even longer. So that should let me run it on the frame for a nice clean look.

One last question, where to you get the o-ring?

I just replaced my rack and thought it would come with new o rings. I did not so i reused the old ones. no leaks. they seemed ok. my local auto part stores did not have them. I would think the dealer should cary them. shouldent cost to much.

^ thanks for the info. I ordered some from a hobby store 14mm x 1.5mm but I'll reuse the old ones first as you did. And if they leak, then try the replacements
