I need to know the size and type of fitting for main feed coming out of the steering pump for corvette C6, I dont have a corvette C6, but have the LS3 with the corvette steering pump in my 4x4 offroader
PS - Already posted in C6 section, but no response, maybe some guys doing LS3 in there C3 may know
The discharge fitting from a C6 power steering pump should be a female 16x1.5 mm thread. The pipe for the power steering hose should have a male 16x1.5 threaded nut and the tubing should be formed to hold an o-ring to seal down inside the port.
The AeroQuip P/N for the 16 x 1.5 to -6 AN adapter is FBM2608. There are some other o-ring adpters available that allow you to use other fittings but I'm having enough trouble keeping the 1-piece parts straight so I would go wth the 1-piece part.
