Not I, but Kenny (Boggerr) does. Every time down the track he'd blow off the cap off. Fortunately we found it in the frame. He now has a rag around it and tie wrapped on. Not sure why it is doing it though. If the level is a bit high, that might cause it, or maybe a new cap is needed.

Re: Power Steering cap

It's so funny there would be a post about this, becuase I lost mine somewhere during my five passes down the track at the Edge event Friday.

I noticed it was missing and was like WTF????

Re: Power Steering cap

I found one at PEP BOYS that has metal tabs. I am going to bend them a bit to see if it grabs better.

Re: Power Steering cap

If I ever have to steer without the engine running it blows the cap off. Other than that, mine stays put. I have lost one, but like I say, the replacement has been much better about staying put.

Must be the rpm with the heavy steering effort while pulling the sled. Cause I can attest that it is not just the rpm, lol.

But y'all are not alone. I've seen it too.
