i saw a guy in a mag and it looked like he used radiator hose & an old filler neck & hose clamps to do the same ghetto style.

take a look at TRUCK my 79 custom. 6" front, 4" rear, 460, 37s, 8 lug conversion. F&R discs. this season, i will have the D60/D60 installed, rear detroit and front ARB with 4.88s and 39.5 IROKs on hummer double bealocks, hydro assist and crossover steering

So is the extension really needed? if it's really only there to increase fluid capacity (normally to allow greater cooling in a hydraulic system), why not plumb a tranny-type cooler into the low pressure side - you'll get better cooling of the fluid than a simple increase in capacity will allow for and - looking at the size of the extension - you'll get a larger increase in capacity. Just don't go overboard as a hydraulic system is supposed to run at reasonably high temps (IIRC ~ 200* or so, I'll check)
Just a thought.

ive got an inline cooler on the low pressure side.. i took out thing for put on the crossmember.. the extension is just to keep enough fluid in the pump. when you turn from left to right the fluid rises and sinks. im assuming this is just to keep it from either sinking too low or rising and pouring out of the top.. i went to the boneyard today and picked up a remote resevoir out of an old chevy van. i saw it on the WT website. You just add a fitting to the center of the cap on the pump and connect the hose that is attached to the resevoir.. the chevy pumps had no caps.. they had the cap end closed and it had a metal tube coming out to clamp the hose to.. i should of taken my camera.. i suck at explaining it.. here are the resevoirs.. i grabbed 2 of them...


picked up another steering box .. im gonna tap it and use it as a trail spare..


on the truck

I'll ask again here...cause I asked in Rafs last thread about this and never got a reply...
which hose on the ram goes to which fitting on the pump??? Or do you not have it hooked up yet?

It's a long way to the top...if you drive a FULL-size Bronco

depends which way you mount the ram

IMO you should have stayed with JIC steel fittings rather then the aluminum
but opinions are like a holes

good thread

o ya with the upgraded ps pump does it steer like original or worse/better? and if you hook the lines going into the ram oppsit or the other way, will it hurt it or will the ram just push backwards. hope you understand what i mean. just dont want to mess it up.

the pump seems to work better.. no whine.. havent really tested it out though.. if you hook them up backwards it will push the wheel in the opposite direction really fast.. easy to tell its wrong..
