    Need 18mm-o-ring X 3/8\" inverted flare power steering hose!

    My power steering pump and steering box don't match up with the same types of ends on each one. I had to replace my pump and found that I needed one from a 74 for the pulley to work (old threaded type with nut) but apparently my old pump had the o-ring and metric threads for the pressure hose but the new pump I have has the old standard and flare type fitting but my steering box has the newer metric and o-ring seal fitting.

    5/8"-18 inverted flare thread on the pump
    you can use adapters to change to -6 JIC/AN and adapters to run normal -6 hydraulic line
    or get a custom line made at a hydraulic hose shop with the oddball ends
    they are available and fairly common
    the line will run you about $30

    Easier yet is to just unscrew the fitting on the back of the pump and install it on the pump you are using and then your existing hose will work again. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
