    I've blown a few so I decided to do something different. I bought an adaptor from Motorsport Connections which converts the output of the pump to AN8. Then you can use an aftermarket hose to the rack.

    That makes good sense if they do blow out but what about the rack connection? I could get a set of any hoses for that I suppose.

    I have a 205 Si rack in there but also have a Xsara VTS one in reserve.

    Can you take it to a hose place and get them to put your ends on a new hose ,making sure the orientation and length is correct ,i have had hoses fitted with a joiner in an accessible spot so it could be locked up after the ends have been fitted ,my son had an audi 80 he bought with a blown hose ,absolutely no room with the 5 cylinder motor ,the rack was mounted high on the firewall ,they used steer pressure to boost the brakes ,so replacing the hose fixed two problems ,pugs

    Cut the hose off the rack end and silver solder on an AN8 fitting.

    Will do, mscn have the adapters, pirtek will male a good high pressure hydraulic hose so it should not be to hard? Might try for some old hoses not sure I want to cut up a good set.

    MSCN have all the parts including the hose. A lot smaller and more flexible than the pirtek ones and cheaper.

    The part needed is 741-06-BLK. I'm currently using 100 Series hose, but given that burst recently, I might upgrade to black 200 Series hose, with the PVC coating. MSCN will show you how to make the hose.

    Thank you both, the braided Teflon 200 series hose looks very good, more bling for the car. Is the end on the rack available or do I need to cannibalise an existing hose set?

    Cut the hose off, keeping the steel tube as long as possible. Then braze on a 999-06-S.
