    Default Racing flexible P/S hose - pump to rack

    Has anyone replaced the MI16 solid line to flexible hose, high pressure power steering line with a flexible hose which goes from pump to rack?

    Reason is that I want an easy way to connect/disconnect the hose line for servicing at the track/rally if required. Also easier to have a simple hose made up rather than having solid line to hose fittings and would free up space around the rack area and get the line away from the exhaust.

    Thought about running a banjo fitting out of the rack to hose, then route the hose vertically (on timing belt side of engine), across the front of the engine back to the pump. Gets the hose clear of heat, but is a longer route.

    Done it several time now.

    Used speedflow teflon hose and fittings.

    Cut the end of the original pipe and silver solder dash 8 fittings on

    The ones I did we're in a 205. Just went across cross member and up to pump on top of gearbox. Used a straight at the rack end and Motorsport connections had a fitting to go into the pump. Went from pump to fitting to 90 degree bend. Worked well
