I've run a quart of fluid through the gearbox.. not sure how much more I can do
I hope you are going to add a filter when you reinstall your pump. It will get anything the flush missed.

I saw the link to the one you posted, do they make one with AN fittings?

Return side not the pressure side.

Hate that i'm going to cut and splice but at least with the -6n fittings it should look somewhat ok in the line there somewhere

Re: Lost Power steering ... WTF???

You probably could have fixed it by removing the outlet fitting & flow control valve & run a magnet around. A small shaving or piece of hose will stick the valve open

How about using AN fittings to connect the filter to the pump reservoir directly in some configuration that looks nice and then directly connect your return hose to the filter at the pump instead of cutting into your nice braided hose for an inline splice?

I thought about that.. either off the pump or the gear box

What is that hose. Not sure it's what you should be using for powersteering.

What is the concern with the hose?

Quote:
PTFE lined high performance hose with AN sizes AN8 and AN6 available and come in multiple options for Braid. Hot Rod fuel hose comes in Black, Blue, and Red nylon braiding as well as classic stainless steel. Very good chemical resistance supports even the toughest automotive fluids. Great for Gasoline, E85, Alcohol, Diesel, Transmission fluid ect.

Re: Lost Power steering ... WTF???

There are some AN -6 screen fuel filters that will work for PS Fluid. The hose type filters with barbed ends do not fit inside =6 AN hose. You would have to heat the hose to shove it in and it expands the braid too much to do that.
