Re: Hydroboost hose to a rack and pinion ... hose to -6AN fitting?

The rack pressure port is a m14x1.5 female. The kit I have came with a m14x1.5 male to -6 AN male fitting that can be installed in this location.

What I've searched for for days and did not find was a fitting to connect my existing hose to the rack. I needed a connector that was female m18x1.5 to male m14x1.5 OR female m18x1.5 to female -6 AN.

What I ended up ordering to just make my own hose is 3' of Earl's -6 high pressure power steering hose, Earl's -6 AN, 120 degree power steering hose end, Earl's -6 AN, 45 degree power steering hose end, and a Russell -6 AN male to m16x1.5 o-ring power steering adapter.
Sounds like a good plan. I found a female m18x1.5 to male m14x1.5 on Amazon, search "Fitting Reducer Metric M18 x 1.5 M18X1.5 Female to M14 x 1.5 M14X1.5 Male Gauge Meter"
