    On the later style power steering hoses, the high pressure side has an 'o' ring on each end (pump and box), should the low pressure side have one where it comes out of the box? Mine hasn't but I don't know if I've been careless and dropped it or if they just don't have one.
    Anyone got one stripped or have a parts book?
    Thanks.:D

    When I rebuilt my neighbors 87 it had o-rings on each line at the box. Not sure about the pump end as we never disconnected it.

    All the ends have o-rings except for the return to the pump. It just slides over the little pipe on the pump resevoir and gets attached with a hose clamp.

    Ok, thanks. I figured there should be. i guess I dropped one as I pulled it off. Well....that's well and truly jet-washed away now! I bet none of the dealers over here have them in stock either!

    Any parts store will have a selection of O-rings that can be used with power steering. You just need to look at the sizes and pick the correct one.
