Re. pwr steer hoses , I have a cust . that restores early bronco's with a Nissan pathfinder pumps ,both are inverted flare fittings 16 & 18 mm, the pressure is the 16mm I believe with a 5/16 metal line I make about 4" then I weld on a #6 AN to tube this allows infinite adj. and you use #6 straight swivel fittings on a hose to pump side another #6 weld on pump fitting,return is easier ,18mm also inverted fitting comes 5/16 ,I drill out to 3/8 flare tube and put hose clamp bulb on other side for clamps or I can weld another #6 and put swivel fittings ,I will try and post a pic of fittings.
