PS return hose
Anyone know where i can find one of those besides ordering from the dealer? i can only find them for years 91 and up and i have a 1990 with a 4.2l. It had a hole (looks like previous owner tried tightening it and twisted the actual tubing) on the metal tubing on the first bend from the steering box. I cut it from there and ran a pressure hose from there to the power steering pump. I don't think its going to hold that long. Its only a temporary solution till i can find one.

Thanks in advance.

the return hose shouldnt have much pressure on it at all. rubber tubing is probably plenty good for a long term solution. but i'll look around and see if i can find what you want

i just checked a couple of parts house sites and all of them just sell a length of hose rubber hose for the return hose and they all say "cut to fit" the pressure side is the one that needs a custom hose to hold the pressure.

Advance Auto Parts: Power Steering Return Hose

just go to advance auto or napa and ask them for PS return hose, it's probably steel reinforced on the inside.

thats what i figured. but getting a new one would give me a piece of mind i guess. from where steering box i only had about an inch an a half of tubing to clamp the hose with

hmmm, besides the dealer, you could probably find a hydraulic shop in town that would make you one.
