Wow, these power steering hoses put the hurt on me.  $135 for the 4 hoses (90* fittings are HIGH!), just shy of $19 for return line hose, and just shy of $19 for 2 fittings.  So, with a few clamps, it rings up $175 just for plumbing, not counting what I have in the steering valve and cylinder.  But when finished, it'll be worth it.  I needed 2 more fittings, but they were out of stock, so I'm modifying what I have.

I just installed the hoses, just mocking up the 2 for the not yet mounted cylinder.  I just barely had them made long enough as they are a lot stiffer than the hose I used to take measurements, but they do work ok.  I got the return lines plumbed as  well, having to T the 2 returns from the steering valve and the hydraulic control valve.  This will go to the oil cooler, then back to the hydro return port.  For now it's just a loop circuit until I get the cooler installed.

These kind of projects are so much more difficult/painful due to my neck surgery over 2 years ago, so this may be my last big project for a good while, but heck, it'll be a good while before this one is done!

I'd bet it's done sooner than you think.  :smilewink:

Work was hot and humid, so didn't feel like doing much at all on Allis.  I did cut the ram 1/2" shorter to being the cylinder mount boss where I needed it.  I bolted the heim joint on the steering cylinder to the front spindle, and the geometry seems to be spot on for full lock to lock, exactly using all the cylinder's stroke.  I also put hose stay clamps on the hydraulic return lines & bolted them to the frame side to keep them away from the driveshaft.  That's it for today!

  Oh, and yesterday I went to put a tube in the left front tire.  Once I busted down the beads, I found stop-leak had been used by a previous owner, and what a freaking mess.  Had to clean all the crud out, then used a needle scaler on the rim to remove all the rust before giving it a good coat of paint.  Paint dried fast, and I got the tube in and wheel remounted.  Never use any type of "fix-a-flat" or you WILL regret it!

That's what I have found in tires. Real nasty stuff to clean up!
