Working on replacing the steering shaft and updating the hoses on my power steering pump.
The shaft is in pretty rough shape. It appears to be a collapsible shaft but the "u joint" type connections are looking really rough. After my last incident of my bearing ripping my axel out, I don't want another issue, so in my break down of parts, I am looking to update the steering.
I came across this shaft:
I have heard good things about this product and Im looking to attach it to my tilt wheel. However, Im having a hell of a time getting the shaft to disconnect from the tilt wheel, and also the power steering pump.
ADVICE on REMOVAL?
I am also replacing the power steering hoses. After cleaning the grime off the power steering pump, I noticed a Ford emblem stamped on it. I guess it's a swap part and not Jeep factory pump.
The question remains of the high pressure power steering hose and the return hose, BOTH OF WHICH have steel fittings, how do I find the correct hoses?
Thanks Everyone. It's back into the garage tonight with the BEAST, some beer, my tools, and some ROCK.
