Moroso Aluminium Power Steering Tank

Postby AndyC293 » Sun Aug 22, 2021 11:28 am

First track session since installing the Moroso power steering tank, looks great, but once up to temperature, fluid leaks out from around the cap. I'm using the plastic factory cap...is there a better one to use that doesn't leak?

Thanks

Make slight adjustment to the cap tangs.

Grab some needle nose pliers and slightly tighten gap made by the tangs on that cap before putting cap back on.

Hey Brian, thanks for the quick reply.

Hmm - the cap doesn't seem to have any tangs - is this the right one?

Sorry, I was reading the original as talking about the Moroso Expansion tank. I have not seen leaking with the power steering tank, I would try a fresh cap.

Okay - we'll give that a try. It's not a lot, I was able to ziptie a nitrile glove over it and finish my sessions for the day.

I'd also had someone tell me that if it's overfilled it can leak - what's a good guideline how full it should be?

Checking the level:
To make it easy to check the level of your power steering fluid, we made use of the features we were already adding; Unlike the factory tank, this one has internal baffles to help reduce aeration of the fluid. The top-most baffle is placed at the full position for the fluid. Therefore, when you take the cap off and look inside you can only see down to the top surface of that baffle. If you see fluid at or slightly above that baffle, you're full and good to go. If the baffle/plate is dry, just add fluid until you see it.
