This is something where I would probably find the smartest racer you know. Buy him a case of Rolling Rock to come over and show ya how to hook everthing up and mount stuff. Installing the fittings on the hose correctly is important.

ditto to the guys here, and make sure you get the pulleys all lined up. We had quite the time last year. Ended up getting water pump pulley spacers as well as crank pulley spacers. It's perfect now. Did the kit come with a pump bracket? Any name (s) on the parts? If so you can give those companies a call, too.

if it ain't fun, then don't run

run a hose from the -6 (small) fitting on the pump to the hi pressure side of the steering box. then run a -6 line from the return side of the steering box to the -6 (small) fitting on the side (near the top of the resevoir. (tank) finaly run a -10 line from the bottom of the resivoir (tank) to the -10 (large) fitting on the pump. The most tricky part is asembling the hoses. Its not hard, but MUST be done right. Call any speed shop or dealer that sells this stuff and they can walk you thru it. Hope this helps.
