Edelmann Power Steering Parts

Automotive Fittings, Hoses & Repair Kits

Edelmann is a global designer and manufacturer of a vast array of automotive parts and tools. It is named after its founder Eric Edelmann, who established the company in 1909 in Chicago. Initially, its product line was quite narrow and included only a battery tester and push-pull control cables. Step by step, E. Edelmann & Co. gained a wealth of manufacturing experience and grew to one of the leading suppliers of car parts.

In the early 20th century, the company began manufacturing anti-freeze testers, automotive brass fittings, and general products. Several decades later, it focused on distributing power steering hoses, and in 1960 took over production of the hose, manufacturing power steering hose for 25 vehicles. During the 1970’s, the Edelmann family added the Plews division, which originally was focused on servicing the needs of the railroad industry by producing oil cans.

When the industry evolved from trains to passenger cars and trucks, the two corporations joined efforts to respond to the challenges of the industry and service this new mode of transportation. They added more new products to their line, such as measures, funnels, grease guns, etc. In 1995, E. Edelmann & Co. was officially renamed Plews/Edelmann. Later on, the company acquired LubriMatic, the brand that provides quality lubrication products to the industrial, marine, automotive, and other markets.

It was so easy to install and no surprises with fit. Remember to reuse the rubber cover at the steering box as it does not come with a new one. As mentioned, this is the non-proportional pressure hose. Torqued down everything and checked later... no leaks. The small concern is the two O-rings that it comes... they were smaller than the originals, however, no leaks and so it must be all good. The plastic cap that comes with it is for capping the reservoir inlet while flushing the system. I will warn some DIY and newbies that it is a pain to remove the return hose from the reservoir without risk damage. If you are doing this in the cold seasons or if the hose is old and very stiff, you might consider having a new one and cutting off the old hose. In my case I vacuumed the old steering fluid out by running the engine a short while and pumping out the old fluid from the fill opening. In about five cycles the fluid looked nice and clean. Still no leaks.
