pwer steering line help

Hello all,

Does anyone know of a aftermarket pressure line that has the steel lines crimped in the correct orientation?

The line i removed was out ~90 degrees and the new one from Napa is out even more. What i mean is if you install the steering gear box end, the steel line on the pump end is pointing towards the fender. (if the entire setup where on the passenger side it would be perfect).

The rubber portion is ~12" and i have to put a substantial twist in it to make it align. It just feels harsh and puts a lot of stress on the orings and fitting.


I had a new hose made with flare/swivel fitting from Parker hose but it is very stiff, (more for heavy equipment) It would be nice to use the correct line if I can find it.

Chris

your profile shows your jeep has a 360. I didn't see a menu selection for a 360 on either NAPA or Rock Auto.

the pumps are in the same location no matter the engine size. I was sourcing for a 304.

gotcha, still, something isn't right. Sounds like the original line you pulled wasn't the right one to begin with for some reason. Maybe one of the guys on here with a 360 will chime in to help.

I sourced mine from a 84 when installing my H1 Steering box, both bent to the left... one on right side was taller to clear the other one. Got them at O'Rielys...

Both of the lines pictured are from NAPA and were on an 84' steering box and then used on a H1 steering box.

I ended up taking mine to a tractor shop and had them make me a hose that would fit. My order came with the correct factory bends but were about 4 inches too short. In the end I payed $20 for the hose and another $25 or so for fittings to make it the correct length.

Casey,

I ended up at a hydraulic line shop too. I used the metal parts of the hose and had them crimp new rubber to it.

Cost ~30$ extra but it works, The hose is a little stiffer than the OEM so i hope it does not fatigue the metal fitting and o-rings at the pump
