Power Steering Hoses

Power Steering Hoses

There are many different types of power steering hoses on the Dodge.  Here is how I solved the problem of hose replacement.

Leaking gear and hoses

Braised an hyd fitting

This is not a good picture, but a hose shop braised a 3/8 inch standard  hydraulic flare fitting on the metal part of the old hose.  You could do the same if you could find an inverted flare adapter to fit into the steering gear.   This fitting allowed me to use just a standard high pressure hydraulic hose.  They can be found anywhere.

The braised fitting allows for standard use of the hose.  Here is the completed job.
