PART NUMBER: 61-2173b
If you've replaced your NC's coolant expansion tank with our beautiful all-aluminum "lifetime" version, you've likely noticed now that the factory plastic power steering tank nearby is quite the eye sore. Manufactured for us by Moroso, this all-aluminum replacement will never wear out and looks great. The custom machined neck takes the factory cap. Tank features internal baffles to reduce aeration of the fluid. Direct replacement for the factory tank. We always recommend changing the factory hose clamps out for worm-drive style hose clamps, available from any auto parts store.
NEW optional satin black powdercoated finish offers a more subtle option than the bare aluminum. The satin black is a low-gloss finish that looks right at home in the NC engine bay, unlike a wrinkle or high gloss black that matches nothing around it. Some other examples of powdercoated tanks done by individuals or other shops make the mistake of coating the nipples where hoses and cap attach. That is a no-no! This premium powdercoating is done at the factory the correct way with all critical areas properly masked so that you get a great looking finish without compromises.
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.
