Pontiac Power Steering problem

Any suggestions as to how to clear the head with a -06 line off the PS pump?
Used an inverted flare adapter and a -06 90, ground the header flange but it still hits. Straight or 45 was worse.

Earl's sells a low-profile 90 deg -6 hose end. P/N 609036. Have you checked out their website?

Thanks for the link.
I called them, unfortunately they gave me bad news, really bad news and horrible news.

The low profile for that size is only 1/8" shorter.
The fittings and hose I have won't work on the pressure side anyway.
The right parts are expensive but don't solve the clearence issue.

I hate cars...

Is the problem that you're needing to go from the inverted flare on the pump to the AN -6 hose (which needs to be higher pressure capable, as you've found out). One option might be to ditch the adapter and form a short section of stainless hardline that has an inverted flare on one end to fit the pump and a 37 deg flare on the other end to go to an AN fitting.

I may have an old factory hose, it comes out with a sharp 90, not sure if I could cut it off at the rubber and have it flared with the -06 nut on it.
That kinda what you're suggesting?

Yes, but I assumed you'd want to use stainless for appearance.

Race car, appearance means little at the moment.

I might be able to take what I cobbled together to a local line shop and have something made. I'll try that tomorrow before ordering more expensive stuff I know nothing about.
If that doesn't work I'll try the modified factory line.
