I've been without out PS for a long while now, I however never removed the power steering coolant loop, and would like to know what others did to remove it.
I know the FMIC kits come with a relocation loop, but I'd like to ditch it all together.
Originally posted by BigIslandSevens Take it off and cap the lines where it connected. Since I assume NO fluid is flowing threw it it shouldn't miss the loop. Just a couple of bolts and hose clamps I believe.
Well, I figure it the IC kits, elimante most of the loop, and I don't have PS anymore, why keep it?
So do I just remove the lines and put bolts in the rack where the lines use to go?
Anyone off hand know the size of the bolts I'm looking for and how long it should be?
This is as much as you can simplify the steering rack short of disassembling it. Fluid does still transfer from one side of the rack to the other unless you remove the internal piston system completely.

Thanks Jim, had a feeling you would chime in on this. Do you remember the parts that I would need off hand, looks fairly straightforward, but it always helps.
Do you think it would be hard to us AN fittings and a stainless line?
i want to get rid of my power steering loop because it prevents me from making nice ducting for the radiator. how important is this cooler line?i want to keep the power steering. and does anyone know how to make it if i cant get one from duane?
