So for clarification what fitting did you use at the pump? Also how thick of a nylon washer needs to be used? Could you get away with using one of those bluish-purple nylon drain plug gaskets?After much frustration, I finally have this drivable. :facepalm:
As usual, I made this much more difficult than it needed to be.
The blue adapter is still too long; it has to have the thick washer as you showed, or it hits inside the steering pump. The other end is fine.
I damaged my steering pump with the Aerotech fittings; they are definitely too long. This was the source of my noise. Pieces rubbing the rotor, lol.
The length is too short at 10" of tubing; 12" worked better. I think I have a collapsed motor mount as well.
I fixed the pump, and all is well.
Does anyone have a partnumber on the OEM teflon steering-tube-nut seals?
