Grant,

The hose Greg sells only applies to the low pressure side, I think from the pump to the reservoir.

The hose I am working on is the hose from the pump to the rack. Fittings cost $42 and the hose costs $25 custom built for me.

So this fix seems to work fine. The total cost is about $65 as opposed to $290 from an Alfa parts store. routed the hose differently, It goes up against the firewall and to the power steering from there. In the original setup, it goes to the front of the engine bay and up towards the front of the PS pump. A little strange if you ask me.

The only issue is, the banjo BOLT which goes to the rack is a little bit short. It has about 4 threads into the rack. The reason is the new 10mm banjo fitting is thicker than the original one. I also made the hose a little too long. It should be around 2.5 feet. I had mine done to about 3 feet so it doesn't look as nice in the engine bay.

If anyone can find a longer 10mm banjo bolt, please let me know.

Nice work!

Any chance on a few pictures for the rest of us?
