I’m installing a CBR rack along with a LS conversionI’m using a PS pump from a Truck with a intergrated reservoir.

The lines at the rack are 6an so I picked up a 16mm to 6an fitting for the PS pressure port and plan to run 6an braided hose (ptfe).

Not sure how to handle the Return line at the PS pump. It is just a plastic nipple and it is larger in diameter than a 6an line so I can’t just put a hose finisher and clamp the hose to it.

Any ideas? I was thinking about using a tube nut to an fitting but wasn’t sure how that would work with plastic?

Any other thoughts on how to handle? I like the idea of keeping braided hose and fittings here but I’m not married to it for the return line, keep in mind the CBR rack side will remain a 6an fitting.

Thanks for any help!

My return line is hose clamped to tube on power steering pump. The supply line I had made up at the local hydralic hose maker in my town . Both hoses are the same rubber material they use for hydralic hoses.

Starting to wonder if I should dump the SS braided hose for the return line. Pretty sure I can get some 7/16 hose to slip over the PS pump hose barb.
- note 3/8’s feels to small to get over the barb… but maybe!

Not alot of pressure to worry about so maybe I can just run a high pressure fuel hose.
