A very long PS return hose??


New member
Hello Guys. Im New on this forum, and i come from Norway, Europe-
I also have owned a Transport some years ago.

I bought a Pontiac Transport 94 today, -just for using it some months at my job.

Problem is PS is leeking at Return hose. (MIX of rubber hose and steel-line)
When i follow the line it make a long long way from the pump. going to front track-bar, making a U-turn, then going back the same way to the steering rack.
Im sure this is an original set-up, since the rust is present.

So whats the purpose of such a so long Return-hose?
Can i shorten the line?

i cant find any cooler.

Anybody know?
