5000 PS hoses

Happy Easter everyone!

I just wanted to warn those that might be considering the replacement of
the high pressure hose in the hyd. system (from pump to rack).  I
replace mine a month ago with a US made one from GPR.  It made ahumming
noise, and also caused the steering to be very heavy.  I think another
lister had this same problem recently.  I called GPR and they sent me a
new German made hose, with sheath, no questions asked.  I think the US
made hose lacks the internal damper.  I was also leaking a bit by the
crimp at the rack end when I removed it yesterday!

You don't want to do this twice, as it's tough to get tyour fingers and
a wrench in there by the rack!

Its back to quiet steering now!
