93 YJ 2.5 power steering return line

I just installed a cold air intake on my jeep, which came with a new and longer power steering hose to loop around the new filter. When I installed the intake, it said to lightly bend the metal line out of the way of the heat shield mount. when I did it started leaking. Since I have a new line, I just want to get a fitting for the return line instead of getting a whole new hose just for the metal line going into the steering box.

does anyone know the diameter of the metal line portion of the return line to the reservoir from the steering box? It would be greatly appreciated

I believe that you have to get a new line, it is a hydraulic style line fitting, but it isn't a standard thread. And it is a metric thread so that makes things even harder to replace.

Its the low pressure return line, so its just a screw clamp on on each side. I can go to carquest or autozone to get a metal line and bend it and all that, I just don't trust the guys there to give me the correct size (especially autozone).

I agree with Harley that its a 3/8 pipe, but I think that they are metric threads. At least that's what I had problems with on the 2.5L with the reservoir mounted on the radiator support.

I think he means the nut that is on the line and screws into the steering box. I could always reuse the nut if it came down to it, couldn't I? I mean I plan on getting a piece of metal line and flaring it myself so I could just take the old nut off the old line and put it on the new line. Shouldn't have any issues with that, right?

Anyone know where to find the remote PS reservoir for the 93 YJ 2.5L 4cyl? I have only found on mopar parts but is not longer available. My current reservoir (from previous owner) has a leak from the nipple connection. I assume from over tightening on plastic. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I may have one from my '92 4 cylinder that I pulled to insert my SBC. I will not be able to check until the weekend, and would not be able to ship it until the next weekend. Send me a PM to remind me to check if you are interested.

This is what most TJ and YJ guys use for a replacement

Read the reviews

And a cold air intake is usually just a way to ingest more grit in engine as the oem paper works better

Thanks Digger. I will give this a run. Only other option at this point was recasting with polymers. Thx.
