Get rid of the 90's .Use strait fittings to the cylinders and connect the hoses directly to the fittings. No risers.   "Easy out" :thumbsup:
i wish i could :angry: but it would hit my hood if i ran it that way

you can get easy outs from sears.
if its a clean break, there shouldnt be any metal in the cylinder.

like serioushydros said, ditch those 90's and get straights..

i have straight fittings in my 89 lincoln towncar...my hoses clear with hella room left over....you just have to bend the hose down and run it down and zip tie it so it wont move....thats the easiest way to do it......you should have no problem at all using the straight fittings :cool:
New pumps for my lincoln :biggrin:


:cool:

An option for that would be a hose end with a 90 bend it rather than the 90 fitting. Or a piece of high pressure tubing bent and fitted onto the hose. The only problem would be the tube fittings coming loose from the cylinders shifting around. You could also run a 45 fitting so the hose will be at an angle off the cylinder. That way the hose wont need to bend as much.
