Running out of places to get more fittings. This would be easier if I had the crimping tool at home

Don't suppose if anybody has a good part number for valley or napa fittings? I think the parker fitting number is 20642-6-6 which valley or napa can't cross and the eaton number appears to be FC79880606S which they cannot cross either.

All I need to do is hook up the cooler side of the orbital and I can bleed it out and pray it works . I also FINALLY rerouted my fuel filler neck. No more broken gas caps lol. Only took a 1.5 yrs and probably a dozen gas caps.

Oh and I bought WAY to much hose for my steering. Plenty for spares lol.


The orbital seals with o-rings, but on the other fittings should I have put teflon tape or similar?

I've heard both ways............

However, I prefer to use teflon tape on my hydraulic fittings. I just make sure that I start the tape 1/8 inch up from the bottom of the threads.

I has steering and so far no leaks. It is 2 turns one way to lock and 2.5 turns the other to lock.

oops


Climbing a tree and spotting yourself up the pass side is kinda hard to do Thankfully its only sheet metal and with no support to it it mostly just bends back into place lol.

just a little sidewall flex

Those are the new leafs lol. The old ones were "s" shaped .

I replaced my old ones with the same application "good" used ones. These newer ones lifted the ass 2"s from where it was , I think those old ones were pretty toasted.

$100 Orbital
$100 Ram
$220 fittings/hose etc...(enough hose left over to redo the whole thing and extra fittings to make trail repairs if needed.
$10 Fluid
$3 for pump reservoir extension from junkyard
Steel for mounts left over from other projects

Probably gonna buy a $40 cooler to add to it. I have a cooler already on it from the previous system, but its kinda small.

Steering worked well, developed a pin hole leak in the hose from the pump to orbital very early on, but since I used "field fittings" I was able to cut the hose back past the pinhole and reinstall the fitting and keep on going.

I did however manage to break my RR 14 bolt shaft.
