High Pressure power steering hose

Hey all! My high pressure power steering hose just blew at the "B" nut at the pump. Meaning, the fitting is still in the pump but the line is out. Do I need to replace the whole line or is there a retainer I can swap out? Many thanks!

Duncan

X2, wouldn't cut corners with hose connections like that. They shouldn't be that much.

That nut is available from the Ford dealer here in Australia, it's the same as the one used on our Falcon. It's a nut with a o ring seal and a clip inside, once it is put on it shouldn't come off, you have to carefully grind the nut to remove it and put on the new one. But also our trucks are right hand drive, done by Ford Brazil for Ford Australia.
I would think the connection to the pump is the same LH drive or RH drive.
Cheers Colin.

Thanks for the input guys.....It looks like it's swaged on there but a new line was only 34 bucks at NAPA. I was backing up in two feet of snow trying not to hit my neighbors truck when it blew. I must have been too close to the stop.

I will say this though....It jerked the wheel right out of my hand when it happened! Luckily for me I was close to home.

Thanks again!

Duncan

Can anyone tell me why Ford uses that pressed on fitting over an o-ring on the pump end, and a flared fitting on the steering end? Why not use a flared fitting on both ends? I'm getting tired of replacing that dang hose!! I've replaced it 4 times in 6 years. The last time was last week, and the time before that was 7 months ago.

I can't get a wrench on my high pressure line nut on the pump. The pulley wheel is in the way for starters, but its so tight, I don't see how I'd turn the wrench if i got it on there. Is there anything else I need to remove to get at that line?

Oversized tires? My truck is 10 plus years old, with oem wheels, and never had a problem with the ps hose,

More Info on the Ford PSP High Pressure Hose

Check out this Thread for additional information on the defective design of the factory Ford PSP High Pressure Hose.

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/10...ring-line.html

I'll be upgrading my PSP to a Saginaw-style GM pump, an also adding a hydraulic ram power assist, but I'm running 40" Nitto Mud-Grappler tires, and will need the extra power.

However it's common for the Ford Factory PSP high pressure hose to blow out of the fastening nut at the connection with the Ford PSP. There's an itsy bitsy retaining clip that wears down over time and when it finally fails, the High Pressure Hose is then allowed to blow free of the retaining nut - a design weakness and flaw IMO.

Very good info there about the clip, reps sent on this problem.. Scary stuff. Any pics available of this design flaw??

Here's a picture of Ford's high pressure PS hose snap ring/C-clip that let loose on a neighbor's F250 recently. That itsy bitsy snap ring on the right is the only thing holding the male steel ferrule end of the hose to the retaining nut. It's not even made out of steel. Made of a brass or copper or bronze type of metal. These snap rings wear away over time. The loss of snap ring material is visible on the bottom of the snap ring in this photo. In addition, a good portion of this snap ring is entirely missing - from 07:30 to 11:00 hrs. Failure occurs when the snap ring wears to the point that it can no longer restrain the PS hose from blowing free of the retaining nut that secures it to the PS pump. Causing this: All your tranny fluid pukes out of the power steering system.
The vehicle owner initial response will be this:
After some analysis of the problem, and figuring out what a worthless POS PS Hose Ford designed for their PS pump, you'll be doing this:
