Which power steering hose for my 69???

I bought a new power steering pressure hose for my 69 coupe. It has a male adapter on one end and a female on the other. My old hose has 2 male adapters. Plus the male adapter on the new one is too large to fit into my power steering pump.
Where can I find a hose like my old one?
I was going to cut my old fittings off and use them on the new hose and reflare the tubing but the tubing is a larger diameter.
Thanks

Jeff, Your pump itself should have a male fitting potruding from the back. It seems it has the incorrect pump. From what model I don't know.(Anybody?) Put the correct pump in or research what hose you had on there if your not concerned about the pump being correct.

Thanks SAURON. But my steering box takes a male fitting also and that's the end of the hose that has a female fitting on it.
Thanks

Jeff, Did someone put an adapter on the end of the male fitting on the pump? If so take it off. Wish I could see it.
PUMP: ONE male fitting
ONE return line/no threaded fitting
The correct fitting goes through the resevoir and screws into the pump itself. Scott

If you just want to stay with your current pump, go to NAPA, they can custom build a hose for your needs.
