Any particular reason for aeroquip stuff other than that you can make it yourself???

I can supply aeroquip style stuff at the same kinda prices as Fay @ Speedflow...

Edit just checked our suppliers website and they don't do metric either.

I CAN make up hoses to pattern/length etc, if you get stuck I could even possibly do them via here and post out, might need to 'see' the fittings (photo's) that the hose will have to fit to as there are no end of 'different' fittings for power steering applications...

i think when had the last set made they strugled with the fittings, so we used the old fittings and made new pipes, i think there an odd thread, but you seems by your post that you have found this out already, i no a place that specialise in breaking jags i suppose you could get them from them which will give you a bit of a start?

havent got ANY fittings to copy or check thred pitch!, i have opted to go for aeroquip fittings,as allstar performance do fittings to take-6 from the rack,but they dont do them in 12m...i can see i need the o ring type fittings as appose to non o ring type ,and one is 12m and the other is 14m...hope this makes sence

As I said, I need to see what type of ends they are, I can swage up high pressure hydraulic hoses at work (that's what we do) but would need samples of ends...

p.s. we do o'ring type ends, but if they are the ones I think you mean they are OE ends only, although I do know where I can get adapters to make hose assembly easier, if you want to have a chat about options give me a ring at work 01162761131 and ask for Guy...!!!

Carl. Give Mark a call mate.We Know a chap locally that races jags and has a yard full of them. I haven't got his number but I know Mark has. Also remember that the pulley needs swapping on the pump.

I only know thats what Mark had to do when putting a jag rack on to his chevy truck a few years back. I think the chevy pulley created too much pressure. That was with a chevy pump though so if you use the jag pump it should be tickety boo.
