Power Steering hose

Hey guys, I need help hunting. My '55 Caddy blew the power steering pressure hose, and I can't find a new one ANYWHERE. All the parts stores, google, ebay, the resto places, everywhere I know to look. So, Does anyone know where I can get one? Will something else fit? I would think all GM's from the 50's used a similar power steering system...so if I hunt for one form a Bel Air or something will that work?

I don't know wer a new one is, But you should have someone local that can make you one. Some of are NAPA stores can make them for us. They can make them for my Rolls so they should be able to find the fitting for a 55 Caddy.

what year pump do you have ? 79 and up most are metric o ring type fitting but you can swap to the older flare style from an older box

you should be able to use anything 79 older form a car truck or van whatever length or bends you need just have the counter person pull a few diferent random application hoses

youll find one that will work

napa machine shop will build you one but it may cost more than a stock replacement one

Oh yeah I guess I should've specified that too, huh? Its the stock '55 pump and gearbox. The Napa guy I talked to must've been having a rough day because he wasn't willing to help with anything that wasn't listed directly in their parts manual...but the dude at Advanced Auto said I could bring the old hose in & hunt through his stock room for one that'll fit. So I guess as long as its a similar length & the right thread on the fittings it'll work fine, right?

If there is a shop near you that makes industrial hose assemblys, they likely can help you out.
