Has anyone looped their P/S lines? i want that pump gone....lol
i'm currently replacing tie rod inners, so i may as well loop while i'm down there.
Please post any info since.....well i can't find anything on it.
Yeah I looped the p/s lines to my 4A-F not that hard I took off the p/s pump along with the bottom hose and unscrewed that little metal tube that bends into the rack I think it's called a housing tube. I then used a little metal cutter to remove the hose off that tube because the hose has some metal attachment that you just can't cut off with a knife, so I cut that end off right after that metal attachment. After that I put back on that metal tube, bought a new hose line for the one I removed, then filled it up with p/s fluid and looped the lines with a vacuum connector. I'm sure theres an easier way to do it, but thats what I did for mine. What engine you doing it for?
the m/s-p/s conversion....not really an alternative. moreso an upgrade. the only reason i'm going this route is because i have p/s and replaced all the inner and outer tierods with moog's.
and trd i have a 4af as well......and pulling whatever power out of it that i can before the 4age blacktop swap will be......just fabulous.
trd do you know what thread pitch and size the vacuum fittings are? cuz i may use a larger brake line with appropriate fittings for a clean loop.
Sorry I dont remember the size, but I'm going to re-do it later on anyways and add a P/S reservoir when I have money to do a 7agte 20v swap. I know how you feel about trying to get as much power as you can from the 4A-F it's a fun little engine to toy with until we can swap it out for a better powerplant. Do you have any engine mods on your 4A-F?
yeah i just finished welding up a custom exhaust for it with a dc sports muffler and 4age headers, megan racing test pipe. a/c delete, p/s delete, front disk upgrade and rear disk conversion. short ram intake off the filter canister. emissions delete.
