Integrated fluid resevoir plus three fitting options, what's not to love?
Jones Racing Products introduces the PS-9008-AL-AR aluminum power steering pump with an integrated fluid reservoir featuring numerous options for the return line. Customers may choose from high or low along with a 90-degree, 45-degree, or a straight fitting, whichever suits their needs.
Each of Jones Racing Products' pumps undergoes complete testing on its custom-built power steering pump dyno which allows Jones to set the pump's pressure and flow, along with a replication of the demands that the driver desires from his steering. Use of these tests ensures each pump is setup correctly for each racer's needs from a local Saturday night dirt or asphalt short track to Cup cars at Talladega. Every pump test is logged and tagged to the pump by serial number and archived at the Jones Racing Products facility, giving Jones the ability to offer the convenience of an annual check-up; the racer can send a pump back for a retest that can be compared to the pump's very first test session.
As a companion to the new pump, Jones Racing Products invested years of research and development into perfecting its own brand of power steering fluid. This crystal clear, fully synthetic power steering fluid is capable of exceeding all others in overall performance. The steering system's demands of the fluid with high pump flow rates and extreme temperatures make this fully synthetic a top choice to provide the driver with a confident and consistent feel from start to finish of a race. This fluid will not develop foam, causing cavitation of the pump nor will it break down during long green flag runs at full operating temperatures. It also helps the team to keep a watchful eye on the stability of the whole system with just a quick glance at the fluid itself. Racers are able to spot any type of contamination in the fluid, helping to catch any problems with the rack, steering box, or hoses, protecting the rest of the system and keeping the car on the track and ultimately in Victory Lane.
Maintenance and changing of the power steering fluid is easy with the availability of its small, handy 16-ounce bottles. This size is great for weekly maintenance ensuring the correct fluid level is being preserved. The larger quart bottles are key to a quick and easy fluid change; two quarts of fluid changed out around 1,500 to 2,000 laps will keep the entire steering system working like new.
