stripped bolt thingy

This is a discussion on stripped bolt thingy within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I've been told it is just a regular hose. Take a piece go to O'Reillys and they will cut you ...

    I've been told it is just a regular hose. Take a piece go to O'Reillys and they will cut you a piece. Try to measure how long you need, I'd rather have a little more then less, you can trim it once you get it on.


    When I do mine, I'll try to do a write up with pics. Seems this is one of those over looked problems.

    One end looks like it's a normal hose, but the other end looks like the metal pipe the pressure lines off of, unless I'm looking at the wrong hose, which is most likely the case.

    depends on if you have the power steering cooler(like the WS6) or not. Then you have 3 lines to worry about. One is just rubber hose, the other 2 have rubber/metal pipes with fittings.

    My high pressure line bust on me a few months back. wasn't too bad, just have to to get it loose from both ens and then walk it up the block. That seemed to be the easiest way to as the top side is metal with some bends.

    gmpartsdirect has the return hose. I will probably buy one soon but it doesn't say anything about the ps cooler- anyone know if you just cut the low pressure hose if you have the cooler?
