PAS Pipes


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there's anyone out there who could give me the lowdown on PAS pipes? My hi-pressure Box-Pump hose has died at the crimped section near the banjo. I tried cutting out the knackered section and securing with jubilee clips but no success so a new one is in order.

I'm assuming the new ones don't come 'pre bent' and that it's probably gonna be a b*tch of a job?

The replacement comes pre-formed ready to fit :D

Cheers chaps. Put my mind at ease! It would appear that NTC5001 is the fella. Hopefully with the new pump (installed at the weekend) i'll be able to remove the pipe in situ rather than remove everything again! :rolleyes:

hi there guys,

Sorry to hijack the thread a bit!! :ph34r:

I am just doing a 200 upgrade in my 2.25 petrol 90 (on a C plate)

Got the pump, got the box, got the resevoir.

How is the best way to connect them up? which parts should i buy/make?

Many thanks

Neil

depends on the end fittings on pump & steering box & what the part numbers ofboth are ?

No need to worry! my mate popped into the landrover orphanage in chippenham this afternoon and got a couple of pipes.

Problem solved!!

Cheers

Neil

*Sigh*

Another problem. My swanky new PAS (NTC5001) pipe has a different thread on the box end to the old pipe. I'm guessing one is imperial and one metric?

Any ideas? I'm thinking of having a local boffin make up an adapter...

Right! Sorted!

After taking a day off work and driving like a madman around north Gloucestershire and South Warwickshire, the old girl is finally reassembled!

Turns out that my 'box is in fact a 3 bolt and thus classed as a 'conversion'. There are NO off-the-shelf pipes that will fit.

So, armed with both new and old pipes, I was eventually directed through a chain of 8 engineers, eventually arriving at a chap called Richard in Temple Grafton near Stratford upon Avon who is a hydraulics specialist.

To cut a long story short, he cut the end off my new pipe, and with the aid of a couple of industrial flanges, bolted the old pipe onto the new.

Reassembled, pressurised and all good!

Thanks for everyone's help!
