Hi All,

I split a power steering hose in my driveway yesterday. I thought I had lucked in finding a replacement hose at early pony parts, but there was a couple of pump options on the 70 and the hose I bought was a female end at pump and not a male.

So a couple of questions.

1) Can I disconnect the belt to the pump and drive a short trip without the PS ok. I have some other jobs to get done on the car.

2) Any thoughts on fitting a 3/8 male to male so I can use the Thompson hose on an Eaton pump.


cheers

Dale

Not really! you could wrap some duct tape and use hose clamps to control the leak until you get to where you going. With the pump diconnected you will need some huge muscles to turn the wheel because you are fighting the ram. Even with most of the system empty , when you turn the wheel fluid will still travel and possibly leak.

Thanks Scott, I will chase up the correct hoses before I move it then. It would have been a pain to put a new belt on anyway. I was just a bit anxious as I got the 28 day permit yesterday.

jbrucem1, I am in Bendigo.

No probs to do that Dale, my 67 hasn't had the lower hosed replaced since it split 15 months ago. I just let it drain and pulled the belt off. Its a little tough on the biceps but I am a big guy too! Keep the tyres up a bit in pressure and away you go.

Kerry,

This is the one that was on it. It is coded D07A, so it is a correct year light truck part.

The hose has a 3/4" male end to the back of the pump and then bends down and routes under the block.

I want to do the return hose and control valve hoses, so time for a parts order anyway.

cheers

Dale

Have you tried Capital Classics for the hoses?

I dropped into Mustang Marque today and Ian had all the four hoses I needed.

I just need to fit them and clean the impromptu artwork created by the oil in my driveway.

cheers and thanks

Pro Hart dropped by? :rotfl:

Remember the Ad where he did the painting on the floor with spaghetti & anything else he could lay his hands on? Then the cleaning lady turns up & with a exasperated cry of "ohh Mr Hart" gets down on the floor & starts cleaning the great art work he just finished.....

Would it be a good idea to get the old hose repaired by PIRTEX or some hose mob and keep it as a spare??????????

They usually will not do it (do not have the correct fittings) plus the replacements are not all that expensive. Probably way less than Pirtek would charge anyway.
