Well when I depowered mine that way a year later it got all rusted out in the rack and was impossible to turn. The time after that I welded the holes where the lines go in shut and removed the seal and it was a little better but still not there. The time after that I just bought a car that had a factory manual rack. The difference is night and day.

My car feels fine and has felt fine for a year now. The ratios for power to manuel rack are different, that is why it felt easier.

I know the ratios are different, but none of my depowered racks ever felt as smooth as a factory one.

Okay so you guys are saying that I can't loop the lines, delete the ps resivour, keep fluid in my rack and have working power steering?
Seems like it would work....

Oh that's weird I didn't know you were wanting to do that.

Power steering pressures are no joke I wouldn't tamper with the system is just delete it all.

Just trying to get the bay super clean with keeping as much as I can.

I'm not worries about the pressure, It will be using the same hoses and clamps.
Just wondering if a air bubble would start and effect anything?
Or anything else that would be weird.

If you're doing a wire tuck, do it the right way or you might run into problems down the road. Imagine getting a leak in your PS system.....how would you refill it without a reservoir

Why in the world would my power steering leak? Just because?
If I ever had a problem I would just install an inline filler cap with the right pressure rating.

So I went to auto zone and got a new tube but then realized the return line is a lot smaller.
Do they make tapered hoses?

Also I am getting close to my psudeo wire tuck. No check engine light yet with the OBD-ll
All my wires are still in the engine bay, just tucked to the side.

Still need to tackle my fuse box

I should have done the alligator tuck instead of the Komodo Dragon tuck.

Don't need much knowledge, just an open mind or creativity. Plus a soldering gun, solder, wire and time.

I'm going to be deleting my headlight motors and the fusebox will be going under the dash. I'm halfway done with depinning the fuse box so I can pull the wiring through the firewall.

First one, looks to be a ground

As for the fuse block, I found it to be easier to just pull all of the wires out from the motor to the back where the battery is. Both had hassles but pulling them all out just seemed less of a headache down the road when I went to put it all back in.

Honestly I have no clue what you are talking about. Just need help pulling those few wires from the fuse box. These one are giving me a difficult time.

You depinned the whole fuse box . Why all you had to do is pull the wires from the rear forward . I tried to de-pin some of the clips screw that i just cut them .

I'm one line away from finishing my tuck waiting on a fitting then i'll get some pictures up . I'm also going to be making my own intake but if i can't get the couplers in time i'm going to just run the factory one . Seeing as i painted it to clean it up and make it look new .

Capacitor (Condenser)

The capacitor performs several functions. It prevents the points from arcing and prevents coil insulation breakdown by limiting the rate of voltage rise at the points. It's primary function is to provide for a rapid decay of the primary coil current. The capacitor also "third-harmonic" tunes the coil, raising the peak output voltage and increasing the secondary voltage rise time. This increases the efficiency and the amount of energy transferred to the spark plugs. If the coil secondary voltage rises too quickly, excessive high frequency energy is produced. This energy is then lost into the air-waves by electro-magnetic radiation from the ignition wiring instead of going to the spark plugs where we would like it to go. Voltage rise time should be more than 10 microseconds; a 50-microsecond rise time is OK. Conventional systems have a typical rise time of about 100 microseconds.
And that's what it does...

And I know what it does because I needed to replace mine on my NA because the wiring was frayed lol..

i have a feeling you did A LOT of extra work...i was under the impression that you didn't need to depin the fuse box at all.

I hope for your sanity im wrong...but then again i hope for my future sanity im right.
