power rack question

Hi All,

I have a "Sweet Ryde" Corvette C4 front clip in my '47 Ford coupe. It uses a late '80's Thunderbird power rack. Can someone verify which fitting is the high pressure feed and which is the return?

Thanks!

Russ

Russ,
the 16mm is the return. The 14mm is the high pressure side.

Thanks! I had a feeling the larger port was the return.

I have an 84 tbird rack and a chevy pump that I reduced the pressure with a Borgeson kit. I can not recall the fitting size plus it came with some adaptors BUT I brought the parts to Napa and they made the hoses and added fitting.
There are store bought SS line but cost big money. Ed ke6bnl

The SS hose kit from GottaShow many cost big money, but I've used two of their kits and saved money from pulling my hair out and running all over the place.

With this setup, my pump is prolly 8" above and directly over the rack fittings. Shouldn't need much line for that!
