Does anyone know of a company that sells polished power steering reservoirs?

Also looking for a polished cap for the brake fluid reservoir.

Can't find anyone who makes these.



Thanks

If you give up looking for a source to buy one new, you can always remove yours and have a shop polish it by hand for you. Here's a list:

Here's a chrome unit for $75 in NJ, but it was listed two years ago. It just shows you someone does this stuff:

Thanks for the replies-

I have purchased numerous caps from ZTek but he doesn't carry the brake reservoir caps.

Looks like polishing the power steering reservoir already in place might be the best bet!

I tried to add a photo of my engine but I keep getting an error message.

Roger that. :roll: We've recently switched website formats and I can no longer add photos to it, either. All mine come out the size of roadmaps regardless what I try, and the website simply rejects them. I'm just frustrated trying. :?

It's good to hear you on here, tho. Where abouts are you, roughly?

Hey Frank- I'm in East Haddam.

I plan on attempting a plenum removal as I have the old style fuel injectors. Got the conversion kit from Z1- outrageous cost!!

Looks like a big hassle to pull the plenum but it will give me an opportunity to finish polishing it. I have been polishing it in place, which made a huge difference, but you can't get all the tight spots. I figure it would be a good time to remove the power steering reservoir for polishing or replacement if I can find one already polished.

Two words of caution: Make sure you know (and observe) the torque specs on the capscrews when you replace the plenum and; drain and replace the PS fluid as long as you've opened the whole system up anyway. To the best of my knowledge and belief, the PS system is self-purging so there's no bubble-chasing required after you've put it all back together, but I've only worked on a few of those "spaceship" cars, so I might be wrong.

Check out ZSpec. Maybe they have something. The president of the ZCCA owns the LLC :)
