#26034975 P/S Hose

Please see post #22 of this thread ------>> Power Steering Reservoir Hose

What we are trying to do is convince Gates Hose to manufacture this part that for the B & D Body. This part is discontinued through GM and is not made by any aftermarket company. They all make Pressure and Return hoses but no one makes this part.

We should have an answer in about 4 weeks if this will be considered. If this requires some sort of minimum numbers from Gates for this to make production, we are trying to gauge interest here and see if we can commit some numbers to them. My hope is they will see this as something they really should offer anyway and make them. But if not, are you interested in for your car and would you commit to buying 1 or more? I know this is difficult without a co$t, but let me know what you think.

Just respond here if you think you would be interested or if you feel this is a waste of time.

I'm in for at least 2

We may only have one shot at this, but if Gates won't play, there are still a few options to be explored.

Great, looks like we have some interest. It's one of those parts you don't think of until you NEED it. I'm going to get 2 myself if this happens and the cost is reasonable.

Keep in mind we won't know anything for a while but I'm hopeful we can get this done. Stay tuned....
