hydroboost & full hydro steering

going to run a hydro-boost unit on my rig with full hydro steering. need a diagram of the hose layout and pics would be great.

What master cylinder works best for four wheel disc brakes with the hydro-boost ?

I used an astrovan unit & mater cyl, took the stock cj idler arm (between pedal & mastercly) out & cut down the power brake bracket 2" , bolts right on after that, still using stock proportioning valve, I can lock up the 39s with ease, & hold in double low...

Other than this I haven't found much at all other than people saying it either works or doesn't with just one pump! I have also found its been one big pain in the butt and I wish I didn't have hydroboost, but my reservoir is made for it so I am making it work.--------------kyle

Deeretech2004 just gettin started
I run the pump and booster off of a 02 silvy with the master from a 85 chevy one ton because the resivour on the newer booster was to tall. I run a 8" single ended ram. The setup works pretty well but gets hot with a lot of stress think I need to mod the pump. The hose routing Is very simple pressure goes to booster first then out to orbital and you will have a return from both.

I have full hydro and hydro boost. I have had mixed results with decent steering and decent brakes. I have a dedicated cooler, but it still gets hot. One thing I had was a T in the return going to the cooler and the straight through portion was hooked to hydroboost return. This was wrong according to PSC. I swapped so the steering had the straight through return and heating issues went down a bunch. If I do long runs with lots of steering and brakes it still gets hot, but I do still have steering and brakes to some degree.

Not sure if this helps, but mainly subscribing if you need more info or something comes up that helps my issues as well.

PSC is right on that. Keep smooth bends at any fittings when dealing with Full hydraulic steering etc. I have noticed when web wheeling on Pirate that most problems people are having with steering, is improper fittings and to small of hose; ie 1/4 size hydraulic lines are to small.

I am not a big fan of the heatsink type of coolers, I don't think they are as effective at slow crawling as the fin type. Not sure what type you are using. I am just thinking out loud. Bored and nothing else to do right now.

My lines are all 3/8 except the pump feed which is 5/8 or larger. I have a standard aftermarket tube and fin type cooler mounted above the rear axle with a fan mounted directly to it.

HD SCOUTII will become famous soon enough
I used 03 1ton chevy van hydroboost pump and master cyl. Also just used a old style saginaw pump reservoir with the 2 low pressure hose inlets. The hb reservoir is a tad higher. Cut a welded the pushrod.
