Power Steering Hoses

Hi, new to the forum, good to be here, I have several 67 camaros, all original and various combinations of RS, SS, and Convertible. Just bought my fourth car and it is a deepwater blue convertible with RS and parchment interior. It is a very original documented car and yesterday on a short drive around the neighborhood it blew the pressure side power steering line.

During disassembly I discovered it apparently has a male fitting on the steering box which is 11/16 on the flats and a female fitting on the pump side which is 13/16 on the flats. Most of the hoses I have seen offered have either the correct steering box fitting, but a smaller female fitting or even a male fitting on the pump end, or they have the correct female fitting but the male end is too small to fit and seal properly in the steering box. I could cheat and replace the pump fitting with a smaller male or even a female fitting and get one of these reproduction hoses to fit, but I would rather keep it original given that it is a very well preserved unrestored car. Any idea who would have the hose I am seeking here? Thanks in advance for the help.

Re: Power Steering Hoses

Don't know where to get original, however if you're looking for Reproduction parts, I have found Rick's First Generation Camaro's to have the most complete and accurate first gen parts. Hope this helps.

Re: Power Steering Hoses

I added a hydroboost system, which included new hoses, but I saved the old pressure hose. I just went out and checked it - 11/16 flats on the male steering box end, and 13/16 flats on the female pump end, with the hardline being an "S" shape. I'm pretty sure I bought that hose at NAPA.
