I have a 69 Camaro with a small block and the pressure line for the power steering started leaking. When I tried to replace it, I was given a pressure line with a female adaptor on the pump end. I took it back, but I was told that it was the right hose and that the pump was not for my car. Does any one know if the adaptor on the hose is supposed to be male or female?

The female hose is the correct one. You must have a later pump on your Camaro. The fitting on the back unscrews, you can either swap it for the male ended fitting, or try a hose for a later camaro.
The later camaros had the steering in front of the axles, That's probably the type hose you had on the car.

The older I get, the faster I was!
