the larger port, aka the one which would be further back is a 17mm and is the LP return.

the smaller port, the one that is closest to the center of the box is a 16mm and is the HP inlet.

hey instead of doing that crimp on fitting, could i get this?
#6 Field Serviceable 90 Degree Large OD-HA2-690 : Steering Hose and Fittings, Fittings Only | PSC Motorsports - performance steering components
or could i get one of thses, put it in the hose and put a couple hose clamps on it and tighten it down. seems like it would work?

and thats for the big hose that has the crimp on end. just seeing if i could do one of those instead of taking that hose off and getting a fitting crimped on

I used that first fitting on mine. I wouldn't recommend it.

Save yourself future headaches and have a shop crimp the proper fittings.

hmmm........how did u attach it to the hose? and for the second fitting i posted, it seems like if i had 2 hose clamps on there it would be snug. and i would put a nice bit of silicone around the barb part of the fiting before i slid it in so it would have better sealing. and thanks for the advice in advance man

Its a 2 piece threaded fitting. And the other fitting you show is a low pressure fitting. Hose clamps might hold it but I wouldn't trust it. The pressure is very high and if a threaded fitting made for use on a pressure hose isn't reliable then I sure as heck wouldn't clamp a low pressure fitting on there. Silicone wouldn't last a second under the pressure of the power steering system. Any hydraulic/hose shop or NAPA will clamp the right fitting on there for a few bucks and you'll never have to worry about it.

you have to take the pulley off. then loosen the pump. its not too hard.

I also agree about doing it right. If there is one thing I learned never skimp on steering or brakes, you are a fool to do so. I have blown steering lines, which sucks fluid goes everywhere and you more than likely will need a new pump afterwards. Same with the steering shaft. Those suck when they break as you are driving. Ive had it happen twice.


The LP side is easy, just barbed fittings and you might need hose clamps thats simple. The HP side needs crimped on fittings and compression fittings, that can be upwards of 1600psi on the stock system alone.
