Cheaper Pentosin source & Hydraulic Hose replacement
To keep my system full when my hydraulic hose developed a leak I had to add
some "Irving 32" hydraulic oil $14 Cdn for 5 litres. While it has all sorts of
specs including some german ones I think I should flush it out and refill with
Pentosin. I used this hydraulic oil before when my first 2 steering racks
developed their leaks (after not before and flushed after) Pentosin costs $40
Cdn/litre from the dealer so I'm looking for a mail order source.
Also What is the best way to flush the oil.
The hose from the hydraulic pump to the pressure accumulator just developed a
big leak in the rubber section. I thought I'd take it off and get one of the
hydraulic service places to replace it. Unfortunately none of the shops had
the correct hose. they could order it - in 100 ft lengths. Oh well, to the
dealer $126 Cdn and 5 days to wait. ( I decided to replace my timing belt,
thanks to the recent thread for reminding me,- while I wait since I know it
hasn't been changed for > 175,000 km) Has anyone found another source for
hydraulic hose - of the correct type?... for next time. The hose is thin wall
with 3 layers.
