    Hydro assist steering, where to mount bigger power steering reservoir?

    Finally setting up my hydro assist cylinder and I see on most rigs they also upgrade to a bigger reservoir. Currently I'm running a power steering pump off of a duramax truck, drilled and tapped astro van box, and a 6" PSC cylinder. Factory reservoir off the back of the stock 4.3l pump with the extended fill neck that puts the cap up by the ac compressor. I'm planning on replacing the factory power steering cooler with as big as one as I can fit behind the grill.

    do I need to upgrade to a bigger reservoir?
    any ideas where to mount the damn thing? I burnt up about any decent sized spot under the hood with the OBA compressor and accessories.

    Extended fill neck and big cooler should be enough for most cases I think. I ran that kind of setup for years with sbc, k5 blazer and hyd.assist.. After ls swap I used c5 vette pump and its small plastic reservoir, again for years. Now I built big reservoir, but it was mostly for peace of mind.. If you really want more fluid capacity, you could try to make the fill neck as long as possible, also maybe bigger diameter. Just mount and support it properly that it doesn't fall of because of added weight.
