Yeah nah it all plumbs into radiator with a crossover pipe from left to right. Cheers
Some models had the power steering cooler in the radiator as well as the transcooler.

Maybe on later models? Fairly sure Vt/VX just had the extra steel pipe looped in front of the radiator.

I know our L67 has the twin trans coolers but the PS is definitely not in the radiator tank.

My bad, it was VE VF that had the powersteering cooler in the radiator.
I did find this. Hope it helps.

This is relative to VT series 2.

Hi mine goes around to front of aircon condenser and loops back into engine bay. Gets hot but cooler than in engine bay! Cheap power steering cooler! ( basically) can you please tell me what temp is power steering approximately? Cheers

Thanks for the pic! Mine has identical 4 lines. I have to swap inlet and outlet to transmission cooler. I was told hose 3 was inlet to cooler and 4 outlet to cooler. Cheers

Do you mean there are two external coolers in front of the radiator?
It does have the factory tow pack but I think it also has dual internal radiator tank coolers.

Sorry no! Mine is a line that comes out at lowest point from power steering out to passenger side. Just in under number plate area. Then loops back into power steering! No cooler. I'll send a pic if I can upload! Cheers
