    I posted earlier in the week that my P/S was on the blink. Sometimes it was PS and other times (when I least expected it) it was like manual steering. Anyway I dished out the cash and bought some brand new tires Wednesday and it hasn't done it since, so I was thinking I would put an inline fuel filter on the low pressureside hose. Maybe whatever was clogging things up is floating around in there. Any ill effects to this?

    WOW A reply /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif I've seen the P/S filters and they're kinda chincy. Where would I buy a hydraulic filter from? And are they as small as a barrel type fuel filter? The only place I can put this filter hasn't got alot of room.

    I've seen filters designed for automatic trannies that look like they would work. NAPA carries them. They look like an oversized in-line fuel filter. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    A hyd shop-like a place that makes hoses should have them. I've seen inline and spin on types. Also check racecar shops-might be the first place to start. Last airplane suppliers-I know they have them but will be $$$.

    Just a hint: for more replies change the title to something like "need info on hydraulic filters" or "P/S fluid filters" I usually do read post w/ titles that are vauge so I guess others don't either. Just my $.02
