Power Steering Pump & Hose Repair

Write ups and tutorials for maintenance and modifications.

^Scott, sounds like you had some bad luck on the hose. Odd that it blew off like that, must've been a defective fitting or crappy crimp job. Sorry to hear that man.

You can't get a PS hose for $25 up here. In Canada, they always rip us off by jacking up the prices b/c of the smaller marketplace. And they nail us for more sales taxes too. It sucks.

Anyways, I've never had a problem with any of the 3 hoses that I've had custom made. I use the best shop in town and it still cost only CAD$13. I bought a 4th used custom PS hose off Danny aka "allblackalltrac" and it's been fine also. I've changed the PS pump so often now that I'm fairly quick. Still hate it though :wink:

^Dan, I suppose so, but I don't think it'd be worth it after postage back & forth, hose and labour charge, etc.

Any local hydraulic hose shop can crimp the hose onto your OEM end fittings. And since you're in the USA, you should be able to get the regular ST162 hi-pressure line for only $35 - way cheaper than us here in Canada. But, if your're in a jam, PM me and we'll work it out.

If you're looking to dress up your engine bay as well, I know that a few of the local hydraulic shops around here can custom make braided stainless steel lines with crimped fittings as well. Clean up the factory fittings and shoot them with some rattle-can clear (or color of choice) and it would still come out much cheaper than factory. And it's not that much more than the steel hose mentioned.

Just had another custom PS hose made up. For reference, the length of the hose is 16-5/8" (Measured from the outside edge of each crimp fitting, but not including the OEM brass hexagon end and banjo fittings.)

This is the breakdown of costs in $Canadian dollars:
$4.40: 2 x crimp ferrule ends
$3.47: 1 x 16.5" 2600 PSI single-wire reinforced hose
$6.60: 2 X labour charge to attach/crimp the hose ends
---------
$14.47 total, not including tax. The ST162/165 PS jobber hose is about $80 here in Canada. Talk about a price gouge!

wow, all your hydraulic shops dont charge that much for this kinda stuff. i just recently had mine done also and gotten a few quotes from 3 different shops. they all seem to fall into the 60 to 75 dollars range. yes, i paid 60 us dollars to get mine done. the hose crimping job only took about 10 mins. but, ill agree. it was a b%&$h tackling this job with the engine still intact.

Just wanted to say....your method of repair is illuminating. I deal with hyd. hoses for all sorts of equipment, and this method stands to save me money. And I know a good crimper whose jobber hoses haven't failed yet. Now I'll be taking my hoses/old fittings to him. Hate having to wait for some fitting. And new ones are often slightly different on fit up.

This is a "10" on the ingenious scale. Props to you!
Yet another black 93 ST185.....

^Thanks for the kudos :)
I originally did this b/c I was so fed up with the damn leaking PS hose problem, but yes, it saves money too.

I'm just surprised that it cost celicast184 US$60 - $75, everything is usually much cheaper in the USA.

Is this hose the common leak point? PS fluid is the only leak left in my RC and I want to be done with it!

^Yup. I think almost everyone here has had to replace it sooner or later.
