Yes, I had that issue with the PS hose that came
with my Johnscars kit. The Cad pump input is a bit complex, Variable input!!! And a steep curve for the hard part of the hose. I messed it up. Stripped.
O, as you, I replaced the pump with a Camaro rebuild. Another hose from John. Still, very tight.
No, I decided, I’m not going to strio another. So, in my engine package from Rancho Cordova recycle was a Cad hose. I was not about dig out the badly fitting JC hose at the box.
Still room to work in front. Radiator not yet in place. I got out my tubing box. Cut the hoses in the metal part. double flared the ends. Used a flare couoling. Joined the JC hose and the RC hose. Longer length allowed a gentler curve and it fit just perfectly. Some declare this method not good. It is just fine here. I credit my double flare.
good in brake lines, why not here ?
Yes, the electrics were/are my biggest challenge. I thought I was dealing with it by an after market harness. Plug and play??? Not by a long shot. The JS system of using the original would now be my choice.
I’ll not Id the harness guy. Nor besmirch him. Long gone, why???
