When I did my hoses (RHD) the fitting into the pump was stuck so tightly that I had to completely remove the pump to separate the hose. The R&R was necessary due to a pinhole leak that was (fortunately!) only dribbling down the inner guard onto the ground. I found getting the return line onto the reservoir such a PITA that I used a couple of hydraulic fittings to do the diameter change, and looped the hose right around the reservoir to ease the angle.

Thanks guys, I do have that clip that holds the hard lines in parallel. Wasn't there when I got the car but replaced it. I thought that there may be a couple of others that helped secure it away from the engine components.

Take the opportunity to Inspect the heavy power cable tucked behind / in the vicinity of the power steering reservoir.

I've seen some that are sloughing-off insulation. Very dangerous situation if it shorts against body or bracket in that area.

The cable is for powering the antilock unit in the fender. You can weld with it it has so much power.

if youĺre replacing just the rubber section of return line to reservoir (cutting crimp where line emerges from wing), then I found good solution was buying another supply hose (reservoir to pump) and cutting off one end section. That way you have the required right angle moulded section, and the different internal diameters correct for metal return line end, and reservoir nipple.

also, this does not look like fun to replace? is it as much of a PITA as it looks??
A brand new factory hose with the proper hose that is compatible with Dextron, has the correct pressure rating, and the correct crimping retails for $220.00 (I'm including these hoses in my year end 10% sale, plus including the required sealing washers.) Should be good for another 25 years.

The metal sections of the hose are always distorted from the first crimping, making the second crimping (replacing the hose) very inferior.

Rebuilding a hose with unknown quality, might not be the best money you could spend.....when you consider that a hole in a power steering hose generally results in a fire.

Like I tell people that use generic hose and generic hose clamps on their fuel lines, this might not be the best place to economize.

Install a brand new Porsche factory hose and forget about it.

If the kids keep breaking a crowbar in the sandbox, sometimes it is easier to just give them a stronger crowbar, instead of trying to figure out what they are doing in the sandbox.

Greg -

I'm looking at doing this job myself very soon and have a question based on the fuel lines I got from you last year. I notice that you're using aluminum fittings on your "reproductions" that seem superior to the original 35+ year old crimped lines. Isn't there anything similar available to "reproduce" the PS lines using modern parts?

Thanks,
