If going the hose/jubilee clip method, make sure you flare the ends of the pipes to give the clips something to purchase on, PAS is high pressure and they will blow off without a flare. Voice of experience with the Holden!

Some of DW’s cheap buys are canny bargains, others are End of Life vehicles. I suspect this is one of the latter. It’s sold though, so maybe I’ll be proved wrong!!

Not exactly profit material though! The Skoda was a better buy. And sell.

That should be low pressure side I would have thought - the Isaac Hunt tried and tested chewing gum to stem the flow, degrease, sand down, and slap some JB Weld or Araldite on for the win*

 

(Well it nearly worked on the Rover 620, but seems I missed another hole - I did go from pissing PS fluid and no power steering to tiny MOT-failworthy drip and the return of power steering).

Judging by the way it's spraying out all over the place, I would say it is not...

And today, dangerously close to Blackpool. The glamour!

Oh, on a clear day you can see Blackpool, and a few less geographically aware people have attempted to walk across. I mean it's only maybe 10 miles to Lythum st Anne's.
Only problem is the River Ribble. 45 miles by Road, via Preston.

So close and yet so far.

It is the return pipe from rack to pump so it's low pressure compared to the pump to rack plumbing.

Very bodgeable in an emergency.

I'm not going to make any smug remarks along the lines of shouldn't have sold the Favorit, honest. Don't even have power steering pipes.
