I agree with Ratchet, I blew my high pressure hose and my NAPA store is an authorized dealer for high pressure hoses. In Minn. you cant make them without training and a special license since brakes and steering hoses are very dangerous if done wrong.
NAPA had all the special brass fittings and equipment to make your new hose for you.
Do a search in 'Trouble shooting' or 'Tech' section and you should find some posts with the exact sizes of the hoses and fittings.
The original 69 p.s. pump has a 90 degree fitting that exits the pump in back and immediately drops down with the fitting, the hose then runs adjacent to the motor mount and then up and around to the gear box with another 90 degree fitting into that. There are also a special clamp that bolts to the engine mount bolt to hold the p.s. hose there,another clamp that bolts to the gear box to hold both high and low pressure hoses, they are found in some resto catalogs.
Hope that helps
