Topic: power steering coolers
We blew out the power steering cooler in the last hour of the race at Thompson, so now I need to fix it. I hate the stock setup, it's all rigid line that is very in the way of where I want to move other coolers to.
Stock one looks like this and kind of just sits in front of the heat exchanger stack up.
Basically the cooler is just an extra long hard line right from the pump. So it's under full pressure from the system.
So, does anyone have a decent cooler for this type of application? The kits that come with basic rubber line and hose clamps don't feel right. I plan on pulling the stock line out entirely, and figuring out if I should either cut and weld/braze on some fittings for short hydraulic soft lines, or just replace them completely with custom length hydraulic soft lines so I can move the replacement cooler somewhere that it's out of the way of where I want to put an intercooler.
There's a few on summit that look like they'd fit what I want to do, but worth seeing if someone has a preferred proven cooler.
