      massive power steering leak

      I am the proud new owner of a 1980 242 GT with B21. The car is in fantastic shape and I'm loving it, except.......
      There is a massive leak in the power steering system, to the point that a full reservoir lasts about 2 days.
      I have had a hard time pinpointing the leak but I'm guessing that it is somewhat high as the leak is disbursed across the chassis and other components.

      Has anyone else had a similar situation?

      It’s the steering rack or the high pressure hose going from the pump to the rack. Check hoses going from pump to the rack. If you’re losing that much fluid it’s a pressurized leak.
