    My 2003 w900 has that old style cone shaped power Steering reservoir and it’s been leaking. So I called kenworth and they said they don’t make them anymore. My plan was to use a newer style plastic reservoir.

    Has anyone upgraded their old style cone shaped power steering reservoir to a newer plastic top reservoir. Let me know if it’s even possible
     
    Oxbow Thanks this.

    689CD7B8-8D6B-4AF6-9C39-BDEAD2C4A2BC.png If it’s the standard steel type, with filter inside, mounted to a piece of channel for a bracket. They sure do still make them. Look online. Search Freightliner PS reservoir. If this is it, it’s available.

    Sire it wouldn't be that hard with a little fab work. Or just find a good used one from the salvage yard

    Same thing. Different mounting bracket. There’s a bunch of different bracket types. You could grind the old one off, leave the bracket. Drill 4 holes and mount one of these. Could also have it tack welded. Could have yours patched if leaking. Doesn’t look rusty. Where’s the leak? Lots of choices available. New about $200, used $100 on average.

    $200 dollar fix cleaner and at least I can see the fluid
