69 Power Steering Hose

Replaced my pressure side power steering hose on my 69 camaro and now it leaks. The question I need answered is this. Does the end of the hose that goes into the gear box require a oring? I have been getting conflicting answers from the local parts stores. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

No there is no oring at that connection.

GM Power Steering Hose Connections - Before 1980

All GM power steering connections up until 1980 were 45 degree double flare. Some Chevrolet pumps up until around 1970 had a male fitting and required a power steering hose with a female nut. After 1970, all GM pumps had a female discharge fitting and required a hose pipe with a 45 degree double flare and had a male 5/8-18 nut.

The power steering hose pipe at the gear was 45 degree double flare with a male 11/16-18 nut.

GM Power Steering Hose Connections - 1980 and After

Starting in 1980, GM changed to metric connections that required hoses with an o-ring seal on the pipe. The pump discharge fitting was female with a metric thread. The hose had a male 16x1.5mm nut and the tubing had a special form to accept an o-ring.

The connection at the gear was an o-ring with a 18x1.5mm male nut.

So unless you are using a later model gear or pump in your car, you would be using a hose with a 45 degree double flare end.
