PSC pump help

I am installing the PSC hydro ram assist steering in my 2016 JKU.

I ordered the complete kit from Northridge4x4 and I believe the pump I received is wrong. Every video I have watched shows a threaded piece for the hoses to thread on. The hoses they sent me have threaded ends on them....however the pump doesnít have that.

Does this pump look right to you??

I canít call Northridge4x4 until Monday as they are closed. I installed everything else; gear box, ram, and reservoir but and holding off on the pump until I find out if itís correct.

Is there a bracket for the pump? That fitting is for the alum reservoir.

The pump should have two connections. The large connector is for the reservoir. The inlet is for your high pressure out line. If you ordered the high volume high pressure line then it comes with a threaded connector for your pump. If you didnít order the high volume line then your stock hard pressure line threads into the pump. Itís hard to tell the orientation from your pics, but the large reservoir inlet should be pointing up since itís a gravity feed system. You want the reservoir directly above the pump if possible.

Make sure you take your time on all the connections. The proper way to torque -AN fittings is to bottom them out then go 1.5 flats more ( each wrench side is a flat ).

Good luck!

I got the pump, reservoir, and gear box all installed. Thanks for the tips...all thatís left is to connect the hoses from gear box to ram and bleed the system :-)

once complete, please share as many images as you feel like. Many of us, well, some of us...er...I am about to do this and every image helps.
'glad you got yours sorted-out; are you not going to run an inline cooler? I hear it is a very sound idea to do so.

I hate to admit it, I planned to video this but I got almost no video and very few pictures. I will try to make a video to show where I put everything, how it went together, and some tips I learned the hard way.

I can tell you fishing the gear box out was fun ;-) itís heavy and difficult to get out with the axle, spring and shock in the way.

Do yourself a favor and have some high pressure hoses made from the gearbox to the ram. If I remember the hoses that come with the kit are only rated at 3000 psi, I hade some made that are 5000 psi and are crimped on instead of the DIY connections from PSC. I think mine cost about 100 bucks for both.

you sure ain't lyin' about that!

That’s the one part of your install that I know all too well having busted my stock
steering gearbox a few years back, I replaced it with a PSC model already tapped with their snout for running hydraulic assist. I have those lines capped-off and am about to buy all the rest of the kit you got to complete the system ( I had some other mods that took precedence prior to assisted steering) .

The hardest install I’ve ever performed of this Jeep was getting that new box bench pressed up into its spot as I lie on driveway under front end. Ratchet straps & wife saved the day . Those are heavy and awkward to say the least.

Thanks for any additional info on yours.

Finished it up!! I will try and get a video up to explain what I went through. BTW, get the hoses backwards and the. Switching them results in 2 quarts of fluid on my garage floor :-(

this picture is far more awesome since the catch-container is sitting there immediately behind the awesome smelling fluid on the garage floor..


Thanks for sharing. Nice looking hose fittings! Where’d you have them made?

Man, I can’t wait to have this on my rig.

They came prebuilt from PSC.

I moved the catch pan back while putting the tire back on drivers side.

ah.
It just looked funny but Iíd have done the same when remounting the wheel/tire.

I guess those bein PSC hoses is reason that they look so well fit. I thought youíd had some made instead of the ones that came with= my bad.

Nice job, again.
