Re: [FWDLK] Power Steering Hose



Before anyone rubs my nose in it, I think that I brain-farted; I had installed a heater hose, which had
'weeped' the power steering fluid thru it.

Replaced it with a high pressure P/S hose, and problem was solved.

Maybe Ron should try to find a higher quality P/S hose, than NAPA is selling, if its P/S
hose is weeping.

Hey Everyone -

The low pressure power steering hose on my 58 Plymouth with slipper type pump has two issues. The first is that it 'sweats' what is probably power steering fluid and needs to be wiped down periodically. It's just a small amount, which gives the hose a shiny appearance.

The second problem is that when I recently swapped out the pump for a different one, I noticed that the hose had swollen noticeably. It had to be clamped down with a spring clamp to hold it in place. Note: This was NAPA power steering hose, not heater hose.

Any thoughts ?

Ron
