Hey guys! I found these lines in the top right section of the engine compartment. According to the manual the power steering reservoir is supposed to be in this area (I don't have power steering), so I was wondering if these may be the lines for that. If not, what exactly are they for? I have circled them and put red dots in the pictures so you could see what I'm talking about. Thanks for your help!

Those lines fed the hydraulic condenser fan, part of the original air conditioning system.

Ok so these could not be used for power steering correct? We will have to run new lines for that?

I would think you could use those lines at least up to where the condenser used to be. The only thing is, power steering can produce 2,500psi-don't know if the fan drive used that kind of pressure. Good Luck, TomC

Perhaps the metal portions, if they can be flushed clean. I wouldn't trust any ancient rubber. Those fittings in the first picture look unusable; most of the threads are cut off.

Power steering lines need to be sized to the gear and pump or it becomes a problem fwiw
