Hey guys,

When the spring starts to roll in, I will be changing the front accessories on my 5.3 from truck to corvette style. This is purely for under-hood cosmetics. I have the Holley bracket to run my alternator and Vette PS pump; so what pressure line are you guys using? With the truck stuff it's easy to use stock Monte lines but the corvette line has a funny, extended end on it to (I assume) get a wrench on it without having to remove the whole thing just to get the line off/on. The other end of the line is bent in a U shape that I can't see working well with the power steering box in our cars. Trying to get all my ducks in a row while it's snowing out so that on I have all the parts ready to go when tackle the job.

Thanks,


-Mike

I have the stock Vette hose on mine currently. It works, but is tight & bends funny, & is expensive. I also have this piece below to change & use your own made hose.

Features:

Adapts pump pressure line to AN -6 fittings
Eliminates pulley interference to AN hose end
Works with standard 1997 and up Corvette power steering pump (Saginaw TC type)
Work with both Holley accessory drive brackets and factory LS Corvette brackets
The pump side of the adapter is identical in design to the original equipment valve it replaces
Nickel Plated Steel Construction Assures Strength

The fitting illustrated byTuned86ss is what I am using on my Holley Corvette spacing pullys and brackets.

I've seen that fitting but then I also have to run an AN adapter on the steering box too. I like the idea of a stock replacement option best just in case the worst happens and I get stuck somewhere. What type of hose would be best to use with the trans fluid that I run in my PS system?

Monte_expess got any pics?
