Q & A

What's in the Box

Vertical mounted power steering reservoir tank.  The top return fitting is the industry standard AN 6 size. Available with AN 8 or AN 10 outlets. These tanks are NOT internally baffled. 

Bracket sold separately. Bracket can be welded to the tank, strapped to the tank with hose clamps, or custom-mounted to suit your needs.

Notes

  1. Connect this reservoir to your system using 3/8" hose, used by the majority of OEMs (3/8" = AN6).
  2. Use rubber hose and push-lock fittings, or braided stainless steel lines.
  3. Lost your cap? Use replacement cap 617-5022.

Poorly engineered

November 22, 2013
-10 fitting is pointless when it is adapted to a -8 fitting. Port adapter is pressed in and not sealed, leaks. Fluid return areates fluid by slamming it into 90 degree cross drill. Imagine putting your thumb on the end of the garden hose. Fortunatly I had the resources to rework it to be useful. Otherwise it's scrap.
Pros:
  • cheap
Cons:
  • bad design
No, I would not recommend this product.

Faulty Fitting!

July 27, 2013
I have seen from the other reviews that this seems to be a common problem. I finally got the point in my project where I could install the reservoir and plumb the system, but now I am having to drain the system after only firing up the motor 6 times. Why you ask? Because the bottom fitting appears to be only crimped and leaks like a sieve. Out of all the products that I have purchased from Speedway this is my first disappointment. I am now scrambling to get the fitting welded up (aluminum) or replace it before the maiden voyage of this vehicle on 8/15/13.
Pros:
  • cheap
  • Large Capacity
  • quick service
Cons:
  • non welded lower fitting
  • leaks
No, I would not recommend this product.

Faulty fitting and cap

April 28, 2013
The cap is too loose. I've placed it in a vice a couple times and squeezed it tighter to make it work, but it just loosens right back up after a few races. I'm able to get by with that problem, but a bigger issues is the fitting at the bottom of the canister. It 'swivels' but now after 1 year of usage, it leaks from the swivel even when not in use/under pressure.
Pros:
  • cheap
  • large fluid capacity
Cons:
  • leaks
  • faulty/loose cap
  • faulty fitting
No, I would not recommend this product.

Nice

Used this item on a jeep CJ motor conversion. Was able to relocate the PS reservoir over to the fender and made for a much cleaner, nicer looking application over OEM.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Needs right fitting on bottom,

July 29, 2011
This needs a bigger way to adjust the bottom fitting, some of the GM pumps have an awful large tube coming off of them the only way I could make the hose work is silcone seal the threads on the tank and fit the power steering hose to the pump. I don't know why the pumps have to have such a large fitting, if you could go to a smaller fitting on pump this unit would work grate.
Pros:
  • Easy To Install
No, I would not recommend this product.

Good for the money

September 20, 2013
I purchased this tank for my project I ended up getting the bracket that is sold separately as well. The tank is well made and is better than I would have expected. I do wish that there was an additional -6 port. I will have to add one since the tank I purchased will be used in a hydro assist application. The -10 fitting is nice however it is less common and harder to find parts for.
Pros:
  • great quality for the price
  • Looks good
Cons:
  • bracket sold sperately
  • wish there were more port options
Yes, I recommend this product.

This tank holds just over one quart if filled completely. For fill height when used for a power steering reservoir we suggest approximately 2/3 full to allow for expansion.

Does this tank have a swirl action return fitting?
