    I am digging around in the engine compartment and that pressurized hose is just in the way. Has anyone successfully made a shorter pressure hose? Anyone see any issues doing this?

    It has to be a high pressure hose. Just wrap it in a loop d loop and it's out of the way.

    Must be a year model , brand thing? Either my 72 or 79 had a very short line. Used the short on both.

    No idea on off the shelf part numbers that would work and be shorter. but I have a fix, take a piece of stiff wire and mimic where you want the hose to go and how you want it routed. Then take that wire and your old Power steering hose to your favorite local hydraulic shop and have them re-create it the way you want it matching the ends from your old hose. Here’s a picture of mine. I’m not running a s 8126BCEB-B107-49AC-8F29-12055C8F6EC1.jpeg tock Scout engine but you get the idea

    Some shops will make them for you. Just need to specify the length and connectors for your rig
