Identify This Part

Hey all,

I have a beefy hose leaking red fluid everywhere. I am assuming it's power steering fluid since it's coming from the PS control valve. Can someone ID this part so I can look for a replacement? I have searched for steering hoses and control valves on CJP and have had no luck finding something that looks like this hose.

Thanks!

Sure looks like a power steering pressure hose.

You've shown us a power steering pressure hose that is improperly installed. If it was NOT leaking I'd be surprised. Before you replace it, though, an important question- Are you using the stock exhaust manifolds? Planning an upgrade?

The hose you have is either the wrong one, or it is routed wrong. And the bracket is missing, and the critically important clamp on the valve body is missing.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

There are four hoses involved with the power steering.
High pressure from the pump to the control valve
Low pressure from the valve back to the pump
Control valve to ram to turn left
Control valve to ram to turn right

Like 22GT said that looks like the high pressure hose from the pump to the control valve, and it looks like it's in a bad spot. I can't find a diagram of where it's supposed to go, but I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be tucked in where it is.

The factory P/S hoses were in many cases replaced with more generic hoses as replacement part consolidation occurred. Recently, in the past couple of years "concours" style hoses have become available and more closely resemble the original hoses.

As your car description shows a 351 engine in a '68 Mustang, (Not a factory installed choice in '68) is your P/S system the original '68 or is it from the engine donor car? It might make a difference in the hoses you have now.

Thanks. Yes, stock manifolds as far as I know. No plans to upgrade. This is a budget beast.

Sounds like there's more wrong than right - LOL!

Thanks for the response!

Jeff - thanks. I am not sure how to tell. Can I take some more pictures for you, or look for something that would tell me?

It makes a difference. If you do have a 351, the 68 289/302 hoses and brackets will be a disaster, you MUST use the 69 351W hoses and brackets. Lets see those photos, hopefully from a bit farther away.

I'm assuming this is what I should do to revamp the power steering on a budget:

CV Rebuild

Slave Cylinder Boot Kit

Upper Pressure Hose

67-70 Big Block Mount (ouch, $50 for a bracket?)

I would defer to Dan (Chockostang) for an assessment of what you actually have on the car now.
