Power Steering Hose Installation

By 55Stepside

I am getting ready to install a power steering hose kit on my '55 truck. I would like to know if anyone can tell me if the return hose needs to be longer than the pressure hose.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Bill

I would think it really doesn't matter. As long as the hoses fit without being stretched, but with some free play.

Bill, the length of the hoses has nothing to do with how they preform. The volume of the system is not critical. As long as you displace the air with fluid and eliminate any leaks it will work properly.
