Power steering hose
i get my 6637 conversion done, and man it made a big difference. seems to run smoother, and much better.
anyways, i get it done, and the passenger up pipe gasket, and go for a test run, get on it and blow the damn power steering hose out of the fitting in the pump! truck gets hard to steer, so I pull over and see the actual fitting just hanging out of the pump like it came unplugged, so I stick it back in by hand, and limp back home. Now remember the threaded part is still in the pump, just the hose unplugged from its threaded fitting.
I run to advance and get another hose. I take the old hose off, and I can't for the life of me, get that hose barb to come back out of the fitting. I have the hose off the truck, but hell I stuck it back in by hand and couldn't get it back thru with a hammer after I took it off. Anyone ever had one come apart like that? I could understand if it wouldn't have just pushed back in, but it went in like nothing, very light pressure, and now trying to find out what happened it won't come back apart.
