would this hose be suitable for this? http://www.aeroquip.cc/fbg0600fcg0606-6ftlength.aspx also where did you get the breather reservoir?

This stuff isn't under any real pressure so almost any hose will work just fine. I got my reservoir from here where I got everything else http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/group. ... pID=MCTILT You can even use an oem honda clutch m/c reservoir if you want though the fitting on the bottom of it is a bit smaller.

[quote="Erik95LS":sa68xr2f] Here is a list of the parts I used. 1x adapter.

[url=http://www.racerpartswholesale.com/product/AeroquipStraightSocketlessFitting/Aeroquip_Socketless_Fittings:sa68xr2f]LINK[/url:sa68xr2f] ) 1x T-Fitting in -6 [url=http://www.hrpworld.com/index.cfm?tpc=Aeroquip_Union_Tee_FBM2060_-_FBM2066&form_prod_id=604,601_369&action=product:sa68xr2f]LINK[/url:sa68xr2f] 1x 180deg socketless -6 fitting [url=http://www.hrpworld.com/index.cfm?tpc=Aeroquip_180_Degree_SOCKETLESS_Aluminum_Hose_Fittings&form_prod_id=618,615_3144&action=product:sa68xr2f]LINK[/url:sa68xr2f] 1x straight or angled socketless -6 fitting (up to you) [url=http://www.hrpworld.com/index.cfm?tpc=Aeroquip_Straight_SOCKETLESS_Aluminum_Hose_Fittings&form_prod_id=618,615_3124&action=product:sa68xr2f]LINK[/url:sa68xr2f] 1x Female flare swivel connector in -6 [url=http://www.hrpworld.com/index.cfm?tpc=Aeroquip_Female_Flare_Swivel_Connectors_FBM2914_-_FBM2918&form_prod_id=608,601_378&action=product:sa68xr2f]LINK[/url:sa68xr2f] and then about 4-6 feet of -6 socketless hose or any rubber hose about that size. Then you can connect the hose to whatever breather you want to use. Now to pictures. [img:sa68xr2f]http://www.erikhegg.com/oldcarphotos/ps2.jpg[/img:sa68xr2f] my breather and a bracket I made to mount it to. [img:sa68xr2f]http://www.erikhegg.com/2009/January/reservoir.jpg[/img:sa68xr2f] As always feel free to ask any questions or add your own experiences/comments with this. Or if you found other cheaper solutions by all means post them. :cheers:[/quote:sa68xr2f] Was just gonna order the parts for the racecar (and while I'm at it, the daily driver too) but can't fully figure out what I will need. The first link doesn't take me to the actual part and the other links work but seem to leave out the far right threaded fitting (blue) would that be the first part link that doesn't work for this fitting? Could someone please :wink: get me the working link so I get the RIGHT part(s)? Also, is there a link to the hrpworld for tubing and to which reservoir to use as a direct hook-up to the hose? Much thanks for your help guys!

I did my setup a little different then erik's, more like dropspeed's setup on the old ht Fitting: M14x1.5 to 3/8 Hose Barb Parker 68HB-6-M114 ([url:15ff336k]http://www.amazon.com/Parker-68HB-6-M114-8xm14x1-5x3-4hex-Adapter/dp/B002KVFB4W[/url:15ff336k]) Hose Loop Acura 53735-SR3-960 ([url:15ff336k]http://www.acuraoemparts.com/delray/jsp/srchrslts.jsp?vinnosrch=&srchwords=53735-sr3-960&radiobutton=radiobutton&catcgry1=&inputstate=[/url:15ff336k]) Reservoir Setup Mount ([url:15ff336k]http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=1111[/url:15ff336k]) Small Tank ([url:15ff336k]http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productselection.asp?Product=3558[/url:15ff336k]) Tank Clamp ([url:15ff336k]http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=1132[/url:15ff336k]) Tank Cap ([url:15ff336k]http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=1118[/url:15ff336k]) All you need now is a 5/16" hose and a 3/8 tee. However you will have to force the 5/16" hose onto tee to make it connect to the reservoir which is also 5/16". You could however find a reducer tee, but finding them in metal and cheap was somewhat difficult for me. I've been running this setup for over 3 years now with no issues.

I removed my P/S some years ago, had a rack clamp modified for the Del Sol rack I picked up from the local salvage yard and really like the feel. The only time it's a bit hard to turn is at very low speeds or stand still turning.

Good to see Matt around still. Eric, I have sampled a couple peoples cars with this mod. They both felt completely different from each other. Would this be directly related to the different choices in the components used or would be something simple, like the amount of PS fluid left in the system?

The amount of PS fluid (or lack) does play a role. Other factors are: -PS removal setup (with / without breather, simply removing belt, etc) -Condtion of Steering components (worn, aftermarket bushings, etc) -Rim size / tire type and size

Just for clarification: These were both vented systems, just executed slightly different between the 2 cars. Both were on 205/15 Azenis.

what was different about their execution? the shorter the looped section is the easier it should be to turn the wheel.

Good information Erik. I need to follow your write and redo my setup. I know several have noted how my wheel is more difficult than some to turn.
