I can pull and take pics to let you know what I am referring to.
Actually, this is the first time I've even heard of this. Yea, they should be very similar to the 240sx. If you want to provide pictures I would appreciate it. Honestly, I haven't heard of any issues at all. How much did you over tighten the fittings? When I tightened mine I just did it until they were tight and couldn't tighten anymore.

Do the tips look like they've been grinded?

So based from the pic you provided the end flared to fit the rack. It should still seal, I messaged you and let you know that I can send you another set of o-rings and it should still seal.

So it became tight prior to proper torqueing. I removed them as I didn't want to strip anything, so the compressing and rounding of the flared tip was occurring very early in threading it in (as in, the rack depth may be shallower than the 240sx of the same era).

The flared tip on one had a slight grinding to it. The other the tip was just rounded and compressed. WIll take a pic tonight and post.

Oh I see. That could be a possibility that the rack depth maybe shallower. Yes, if you would please provide pics that would be amazing. I really want to apologize that you're having this issue, I feel terrible about this. I'm looking forward to seeing these pictures.

Yep lol. Another set of fittings won't address the issue as they are simply too long for the Z32/300ZX rack. Just want to be specific to my case so no one gets the incorrect impression.

I have another solution in mind that involves re-utilizing the banjo bolts

Wow! I've never seen anything like that. Thought maybe the nipple was just a bit to long or something but it's like the entire fitting is just way to long. Can you do me a favor an pm me back please. I'd like to give you a refund and see if I could get those fittings back to see what went wrong. I just don't know what to say.

Just to not give people the wrong impression


I am not soliciting koolaid for a refund. This was strictly a post to present another data point for fitment and I am in now way unhappy with the product!

Koolaid is trying to make it right

Koolaid, I'll pm you in a few as I'm on the road

I appreciate you saying that and I didn't take your post in that way. I'd rather have this information out there. I guess it's a hit or miss because people have used these fittings on s12s. Specific rx7 and that's even more specific because those racks come in three different sizes. I'll keep an eye out for your message. Again, I want to apologize that this happened.

Just read through this whole thread. A bunch of great information here.

As a question, has anyone tried these two Fragola fittings?

-6 X 14mm X 1.5 Male, EFI or P/S Part number: 491962
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/f...3-bl/overview/
-6 X 16mm X 1.5 Male, EFI or P/S Part number: 491963
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/f...2-bl/overview/

Looks like they offer the 14 and 16mm versions necessary to get the correct depth.

Additionally, Chasebays seems to have wised up and is now offering 14mm and 16mm fittings.

They are hit and miss. Some people have them seal, some cannot get them to seal. The only ones I have found to work besides koolaids are XRP steel fittings. They are slightly longer and you can tighten them properly.

FUCK chase bays. They made their name on sketchy wiring harnesses and jank chinese fittings and improper hose applications. Those first power steering kits they produced were garbage! I know because I bought one.

Doubt those are long enough or worse yet, have the correct flared end as there is actually no standard for PS flared fittings......which has been the issue with just about every PS kit for the 240 as Poorman said above.

Why would you chance it? Koolaid's kit is already cheap and proven and he sold what, 70+ kits or something.

This is not the area to save literally no dollars (you still gotta pay shipping for those fittings).

Thank you sir, I've sold closer to 200 fitting sets. That's about 400 fittings and I haven't had any issues besides your fittings for the 300zx. Again, my goal is to offer quality and good prices.

I didn't realize that the XRP fittings sealed as well. That's good information for people to have.

The only reason I'm down this path is because I bought one of those first version power steering kits. I feel your pain PoorMans180sx.

I'm not chancing anything. I plan to buy Koolaid's stuff when the time comes. I just found them when researching.

Well sucks to be me I just ordered the newest version chase bays power steering kit last thursday -_-

I guess i could just swap these fittings out with yours though if they don't seem to seal right. They said they're supposed to seal now.
