Exclamation Turn One steering box fitting question!?

So I installed the new steering box from turn one (bought from ridetech) and I assumed that the fittings would go right over and connect up. But by eyeballing it, it appears that the high and low pressure lines that are stock (that I currently have) are two different sizes (like 11/16 high pressure vs 5/8 low pressure side). But the new power steering box appears to have the same size on the high and low pressure sides. I have not taken out the current fittings in the new box to be 100% sure but they LOOK the same size. So, before I ruin something does anyone have any experience if the stock fittings will go right into the new steering box without purchasing new ends?

I would call junior at turn one. You may need metric fittings depending on what box you have

On my Delphi 600 steering gear that looks similar, I had to use these adapters to use my factory hoses

Re: Turn One steering box fitting question!?

I called turn one and they said that the actual openings are different sizes m16-1.5 and m18-1.5. He cannot recommend it but said some people use fitting adapters inside the stock hoses.
This is what I have

There are 3 different adapters??? Is it going to be intuitive which ones I should use?

Littlest diameter one goes to the high pressure. Biggest diameter one goes to the return. That's how I did it on mine. Works fine for me. Granted, I used the stock XH box from a 1992 Z-28.
