Get the orbital back out of the cab........serious.

"Shannon Campbell sustained serious burns mid-race when a power steering hose burst and scalded him with hot hydraulic fluid....went to the ER to get treatment for 3rd degree burns. Shannon's feet eventually got skin grafts."

We all know your track record with the Dakota and skin injuries......

No room.

I'll build a good shield and direct the fluid away from my legs.

I imagine where the motor now sits and where the brake booster is, he wouldn't be able to install the orbital at the engine side firewall w/o having it way to the drivers side......as in if having a straight column off the valve, his steering will rub on the drivers door panel and he could only steer with his left hand. Maybe that's what he means by no room.

Have to build a column with two 45 in it to get the wheel centered in front of him again.

Campbell also had no guard between his legs and the orbital. With a guard on the bottom side of the dash he will be fine.

But yes. Don't leave the hydraulic components exposed in the cab

Correct John the power steering pump and brake booster already occupy that space.

Better be a damn good guard when 1800 psi comes out of a hose at 200+ deg F.
