    Where to get power steering hose joined?

    Hi
    Does anyone know what type of place or somewhere in Adelaide that can cut and join a power steering hose?

    I got a power steering pump that doesn't fit where the metal line is. Is it possible to just use this regular barbed joiners and screw clamps?

    Not overly helpful but surely electronic power steering could be an option?

    Be careful, That swage in the middle of the hose like that can be a restrictor internally, the swage collar keeps it in place

    take it to Pirtek.
    You can also try EnZed but every hose they have ever made for me ever has leaked, so
    take it to Pirtek.

    Thanks! Now the big question is, can they do this while it's on the car? Because of I take it all out, I might as well put the entire new one in lol

    D&M Hydraulics at Edwardstown are a great bunch of guys

    Iím no guru but why not use replaceable fittings? No need for swaging

    aeroflow makes power steering fittings to get from what you've got to -6. then it's a case of getting a couple of the relevant field serviceable ends in the required angles and a bit of hose from the hydraulics place.

    I didn't realise for about 15 mins as it never broke the speed limit.

    If you're converting to -6 fittings you might as well go all the way and make up your own hose using Speedflow 490 series gear. This is what I'm currently doing on my Supra.

    Ask Pirtek what they think of using single braid Teflon as hydraulic hose

    Is that in reply to my post? I don't think 490 series has any Teflon in it. From the product page:

    Speedflowís 490 Series hose is designed for high pressure power steering applications using our 490 Series fittings.

    The hose is constructed from a synthetic rubber tube with a textile inner braid, a single wire braid reinforcement and a rubber impregnated textile braid cover that is black in colour.
    I have little doubt that Pirtek would have negative things to say about a competing product regardless of the facts; they're not exactly a neutral observer here.

    It can't be done whilst on the car. You will have to remove the complete hose/tube assembly and work from there.

    are you near me or at least this side of town?
