Re: 210 Outrage - Verado Power Steering Hose Replacement

Re: 210 Outrage - Verado Power Steering Hose Replacement

Floater, If I can avoid pulling hoses, that would be preferable, as long as the fix is done properly. I would need to have a longer "pipe" section if I cut out the old fitting as the hose would be 3-4" too short after cutting the old crimp.
