Hi my Ford 5000 has a power steering leak. I've identified the leak coming from a small break in the metal elbow line coming from the pressurized side of the power steering ram. Ford / aftermarket doesn't carry this part . Local hydraulic can't build me anything because the fitting on the ram is uncommon. I've looked at the aftermarket flex hose but no one can give me an answer if the hose will thread directly into the ram. has anyone done power steering work on these tractors? Anyone know if aftermarket will fit the ram?

The line from the pump to the cylinder had a pinhole leak in it. When I had the cylinder rebuilt I asked if they could make a new line. Nope, couldn't do it. Something about the curves and bends being done on a special jig. Took it to another bunch that specialized in oddball hydraulic repairs. They brazed it up and there have been no leaks. Works like a charm.

Yeah that's kinda the direction I'm leaning towards at the moment. It's leaking around the metal fitting

According to messicks they are avaible for either remote resivour or intergal resivour. Kinda pricey.

Hmm I'm seeing flex hoses with a fitting for around 50$ but no one seems to give me straight answers on whether the fitting will screw into the ram
