: Banjo Bolt Misfit

12-25-2012, 10:13 PM
This weekend, a friend and I changed the front CV axles, timing belt, water pump, power steering pump, and starter on my Audi. The starter was coincidentally dead, but everything else was planned maintenance. So to jump ahead with what I'm having trouble with, the power steering pump that was on my car when I bought it is from 1983 (for a '91 Audi 90 Quattro 20V) and putting out 115 BAR when the intended pump puts out 100 BAR. I don't know how or why that pump was on there, but I bought a replacement pump off evo1couperacing (Greg) and installed it. The two rear (larger) banjo bolt fittings from the old pump fit fine, but the front one doesn't. The banjo bolt from the old pump is too narrow.

So I am looking for a banjo bolt to fit the front port on the power steering pump for a '91 Audi 90 Quattro 20V (though this pump was built in 12/89). Can anyone point me in the right direction for the bolt? There is a little bit of play between the bolt and the fitting, but not a lot. Would I have to replace the hose with one with a new fitting?
