Was wondering if you have looked into making a kit for an s13 chassis and a VH engine/power steering combo?

All orders shipped!

Yes we want to. We just need to know where the Power steering pump sits on the motor and the thread pitch of the feed inlet on the pump.

did anybody get this to work on they're SR

i've been running into a bunch of problems from the start
1) the fitting on the rack would leak no matter what i had to remove the copper washer so it would stop leaking wasted a whole bottle of fluid trying to fix this
2) the reservoir woulndt sit higher than the pump no matter what, had to move it to where the stock one was so it would at least be higher
3) the fitting that holds the line from the tank to the pump wouldnt fit, modified it and it wouldn't let the hose go all the way in anyway...
4) now my system won't stop whinning and bubbling no matter how lond i "bleed" it... my rack has been making tons of noises and so is my pump when everything worked PERFECT before the install...

i REALLY feel this was a waste of money... it might have ruined my whole system, none of the parts i got fit... really not happy with this... chase has been trying to help me out, customer service has been good but im still not happy with the product, more now that i think i might have to repair the pump and rack...

We've never had issue with our kits but last week we had 2 or 3. I think some bled the system incorrectly and caused some damage to your pump or rack. More than likely the pump. Although our power steering kit has a lot of thought/R&D/work into it, its a simple system.

3 lines (4 if you're using a cooler)
Reservoir

Its hard for our kit to cause catastrophic failure. The failure is going to come from air in the system, which comes from improper bleeding. The crush washer worked perfectly on our car and PLENTY others, and all I can personally say for that is perhaps theres some clearance differences on the racks causing yours and some others to leak. We will find a universal fix for this. If it leaks, remove them. Simple.

When fully replacing fluid transfer systems like brakes and power steering, a LOT of air is in the system. With the power steering its mostly metal on metal components and with no lubrication/fluid, failure can easily occur IF improper bleeding occurs.

Let me elaborate on how exactly to bleed your system.

First of all double, and triple check that everything is tight. Loose connections might not leak but could allow air into the system. Do not over tighten o-ring hoses as the o-ring might be crushed.

Step 1: switch ignition OFF

Step 2: raise front wheels off ground (or all 4)

Step 3: turn steering wheel full left

Step 4:fill fluid resevoir to full cold mark.

Step 5: turn steering lock to lock at least 20 times, up to 40 times. If you're using our cooler it may be in excess of 40 times. DO NOT turn the wheel fast, slow is better for the bleeding process and it could likely cause fluid overflow.

Step 6: while turning wheel, check fluid level, a 2nd person is almost required. If you see any signs of bubbles/foaming, recheck all connections for leaks then repeat the steps above.

Step 7: NOW we start the engine. If fluid foams while cranking, wait 10 minutes or more until dispersed air has time to accumulate and purge through the reservoir.

Step 8: Return wheels to center and lower car.

Step 9: run engine at 2000 rpm for two minutes.

Step 10: turn wheel in both directions and check for smoothness and quiet operation.


Also added this to install guide since its becoming an issue. I hope this helps everyone and prevents problems in the future.

i've done this 20 times already... the pump spent some time starved from fluid when i tried installing the tank where you pictured it... the reservoir is STILL bubbling violently like it's boiling...

im going to try it one more time this weekend, i hope my rack and pump isn't fried because of this... i have never had any problems bleeding a PS system i've done it tons of times...

I am also having the same problem as bejota180sx, but I have a KA. The pump squeals, it bubbles like crazy, and fluid sprays out of the little pinhole in the cap.

I appreciate the posts guys. Remember that we're on your side, and want to get your issue resolved. We don't mind accepting fault, if we can prove to ourselves its our fault.

I remember talking to you on the phone David. If your rack and pump went bad then there is a chance you bled the lines wrong. You told me on the phone that it worked perfectly until you installed the cooler. Unless I misunderstood you.

I added the line bleeding instructions to our install guide so everyone knows. I wasn't aware this would become a big deal :/

We've been trying to force this same issue to happen on our car with no luck.

There is 3 adapters included in the kit.

-6AN to 14mm o-ring for the high pressure line from the rack
-6AN to 16mm o-ring for the return from the rack
-6AN to 16mm straight cut w/ built in crush washer for the pump outlet high pressure side

Is everyone installing those correctly or have some of you mixed up the two 16mm fittings? Trying to figure out, if everything is being bled properly, why this is happening. We've sold 96 of these kits, I am aware of over 50 with zero issues. Any local ones we've done have been fine. Either you guys got air in the system during the bleeding process, something is being installed incorrectly (causing air), or somehow its the products fault. I just can't get this to happen on our car, damnit. Hoping we can get it to have the same issue as you guys today.

Yup I installed the cooler and everything went down south, I can't see me having a air leak since I tefloned all the ends on the set up... I dunno what else to do, I did bleed it properly because it worked like a charm prior to installing the cooler..

If you teflon taped the ends of your AN fittings (or ANY flare or o-ring seal) thats an issue. :\ Thats bad. SOMETIMES luck will be on your side and it will work...but more than likely it will leak. AN fittings flare with a 37 degree flare, if that teflon tape keeps the cone from seating on the opposite end fitting, you have an air passage. There is cases where air will pass through but fluid wont (PS fluid is thick) The same goes for O-ring fittings, like the ones that thread into the rack.

I have been having the same issue with my RHD SR. Fluid Aerated, shooting out reservoir pinhole etc. I used all of the copper washers. I verified that the lines are hooked up correctly and have been through the bleed procedure several times. I took the teflon tape off of my an fittings and still encounter the eruption of fluid out of the reservoir. I would think if there was an air leak fluid would be escaping as well due to the high pressures of the power steering system. I might try and eliminate the copper washers on the rack fittings and see if this alleviates my issue. My reservoir is in the stock location. I did replace the rack at the same time as the line kit so I am going to bleed several more times before I go ahead and get rid of the copper washers on the rack fitting adapters.

We finally got our car to have the issue like some of yours and we found a fix last night for fluid shooting out the top. ALL future orders will have this issue fixed.

However this issue, would not cause damage to your rack or pump. It would just shoot fluid out the top. Those issues are related to improper bleeding.

ANY OF THE CUSTOMERS HAVING THIS ISSUE, EMAIL [email protected] FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REPAIR THIS.
