Hey guys aside from changing out the rack what's the easiest way if any to do power steering delete 98 civic?
how long does it take for the seals to blow out?Word of warning, as someone who has looped their rack before I knew better, it does work and it is simple and pretty straight forward, but YOU WILL inevitably blow out your inner rack seals from all of the pressure created while turning and nowhere for the pressure to go.
My rack is currently leaking and as someone who worked as a certified Honda technician at a Honda dealer for 7+ years, re-sealing a rack almost never works long term. Best fix is to replace it with a re-man.
So, if you want to save yourself having to replace your rack down the road because you blew the seals on it, I would HIGHLY recommend going with the Chase Bays route. It's a clean install, very affordable, and most importantly, it gives a place for all of that pressure to go while you turn your rack back and forth. Just my two cents.
Depends, but they will eventually. I would just say check your rack, if it's not leaking, awesome. Then the next step would be to order the Chase Bays kit, install, and take comfort in the knowledge that your rack is no longer screaming for help from the pressure overload, haha.how long does it take for the seals to blow out?
There's a reason why the Chase Bays website mentions the fact that they had two different racks blow out on their time attack Civic, because that's what will happen when you just loop the line on itself.This is the whole point of looping the rack though, the pressure goes from one side of the seal to the other via the loop. There's no reason for the pressure to build if the rack is looped.
When you loop a rack, you don't loop it 'on itself'. You join one (former) pressure side to the other. All you're doing is giving the fluid a path to equalize over. When you loop the rack, make sure there is fluid in there obviously, but don't fill it up full. Just enough to lubricate, unlike a manual rack it uses the hydraulic fluid to lubricate.that's what will happen when you just loop the line on itself.
