The hydraulic fittings on the PAS pump (the round one that is used on RRC Defender and D1) appear to be inverse flare metric, yes? The return line is just clamped in place, no fitting.
I'm trying to find adapters so I can used braided Russell Powerflex hose, at least for the high side.
There is also a ZF pump advertised in the First Four
site that is supposed to be more powerful than the standard issue one. I dunno about that one; seems too 'spensive, unless it is a bolt on swap for the round kind. In that case I'd be caught trying to snipe one from a wreck.
And please, no "that winch is gonna be slow" comments. I realize that.
