Due to a massive increase in sales and supply issues nationally, your order will likely take 3-8 biz days to ship. Need something expedited? Select UPS Next Day or USPS Priority Express (NOT “Priority Mail”)

All of these kits utilize the E36 / Z3 / E46 Steering Rack!

Reservoir Mounting for ALL E30 PS KITS:

Use the supplied Reservoir and Mounting Bracket Shim in the OEM Reservoir Mounting Bracket. This mounting bracket is found either on the engine mount bracket or the strut tower depending on the application.

You will insert the Chase Bays Reservoir with the Mounting Bracket Shim placed around the middle of the Reservoir. The gap of the Mounting Shim is for the threaded mounting hole portion of the Reservoir. Those threaded holes will not be used for mounting on any E30 PS Kits.

See pictures below!

If you are only installing a High Pressure Line for any of these applications, please refer to STEP 2 of ALL engine specific instructions.

 

BMW E30 with M20 (CB-E30-M20PSK)

1. The first line in the kit will be the Pump Feed line. This line will be the largest in diameter and should be about 14" long. You will connect the 45˚ fitting to the larger of the two fittings on the bottom of the reservoir and the other end of the line will be connected to the pump using the supplied 16mm Banjo adapter, Banjo Bolt, and Crush Washers.
  
2. Next, will be the High Pressure line. This line will be shiny compared to the rest and will have the Chase Bays logo on it. You will connect the end with the 90˚ fitting on it to the pump using the supplied 14mm Crush Washer adapter fitting. The 45˚ end of that line will be connected to the High Pressure Port on the steering rack using the supplied 14mm Crush Washer adapter fitting.
  
3. The last line will be the rack to reservoir return line. This line should be about 19" long with a 45˚ fitting at either end. You will connect one end to the low pressure port on the rack using the supplied 16mm Crush Washer adapter fitting. The other end will then be connected to the smaller fitting on the bottom of the Power Steering Reservoir.
  
4. Once you have everything plumbed you will need to bleed the system. This is accomplished by jacking up the front of the vehicle so that the front wheels are not making contact with the ground. Fill the Reservoir halfway full with the fluid of your choice and go ahead and start the vehicle. Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock for 5-10 minutes or until there are no bubbles visible in the reservoir. Make sure to keep an eye on the fluid level and top it off as needed during the bleeding process, keeping the Reservoir half full.
  
The last step is to put the car back on the ground and take it for a drive long enough to get the power steering fluid up to operating temperature. Then park the vehicle and allow it to cool back to ambient temperature. This will bleed off any residual air that may be in the system.

BMW E30 with LS1, LS2, LS3, LS6, or LS7 (CB-E30-LSPSK)

Important! This kit requires the use of a GM LS Power Steering Pump that uses a Remote Mount Reservoir. This is commonly found on the C5 Corvette (1997-2004). There are hundreds, if not thousands, of LS based accessory drive components that are interchangeable - we picked this one due to it's common availability and compatibility with our kit's components.

Before installing any portion of the kit, we will start by removing the factory Pump Feed Adapter from the OE Power Steering Pump. Using a pair of pliers, remove the OE pump barb. This can be difficult as the barb is taper fit into the pump itself. Take your time and be careful with the pump itself while doing this. Depending on your setup, it might be easier to remove the barb and install our Pump Feed Adapter adapter to the pump by removing it from the engine.

1. The first line in the kit will be the Pump Feed line. This line will be the largest in diameter and should be about 10 inches long. You will connect the 90 degree end to the larger of the two fittings on the bottom of the reservoir. The other end will install to the supplied Pump Feed Adapter. The Pump Feed Adapter uses a tapered fit into the GM LS Power Steering Pump. Use masking tape to cover the fitting's threads and body, and insert the tapered end to the pump's inlet hole and using a socket & hammer to tap the adapter into the pump. The gap between the fitting body and pump's surface should be non-existent once the adapter is fully installed. Once fully installed, attach both ends to the Pump Feed Adapter and Reservoir fitting, then tighten them both.

2. Next, will be the High Pressure line. This line will be shiny compared to the rest and will have the Chase Bays logo on it. You will connect the end with the 150˚ fitting on it to the pump using the supplied 16mm crush washer adapter fitting. The 45˚ end of that line will be connected to the High Pressure Port on the steering rack using the supplied 14mm crush washer adapter fitting.
   
3. The last line will be the rack to reservoir return line. This line should be about 19" long with a 45˚ fitting at both ends. You will connect one end to the low pressure port on the rack using the supplied 16mm crush washer adapter fitting. The other end will then be connected to the smaller fitting on the bottom of the Power Steering Reservoir.
   
4. Once you have everything plumbed you will need to bleed the system. This is accomplished by jacking up the front of the vehicle so that the front wheels are not making contact with the ground. Fill the Reservoir halfway full with the fluid of your choice and go ahead and start the vehicle. Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock for 5-10 minutes or until there are no bubbles visible in the reservoir. Make sure to keep an eye on the fluid level and top it off as needed during the bleeding process, keeping the Reservoir half full.
 
The last step is to put the car back on the ground and take it for a drive long enough to get the power steering fluid up to operating temperature. Then park the vehicle and allow it to cool back to ambient temperature. This will bleed off any residual air that may be in the system.

5. The last line will be the cooler to reservoir line. That line should be about 34" long and have a 45˚ fitting on one end and a 90˚ fitting on the other end. You will connect the 45˚ end to the driver side of the cooler and the 90˚ end to the smaller fitting on the bottom of the Power Steering Reservoir.

6. Once you have everything plumbed you will need to bleed the system. This is accomplished by jacking up the front of the vehicle so that the front wheels are not making contact with the ground. Fill the Reservoir halfway full with the fluid of your choice and go ahead and start the vehicle. Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock for 5-10 minutes or until there are no bubbles visible in the reservoir. Make sure to keep an eye on the fluid level and top it off as needed during the bleeding process, keeping the Reservoir half full.
 
The last step is to put the car back on the ground and take it for a drive long enough to get the power steering fluid up to operating temperature. Then park the vehicle and allow it to cool back to ambient temperature. This will bleed off any residual air that may be in the system.
