Power Steering - Return Line or Pressure Line
« on: March 06, 2013, 10:27:14 AM »
I have a 77 Wagon with the 4 cyl. 2.3 L engine.  I have a leak in one of the power steering lines and want to be sure which one it is before I order the wrong one.  Is the pressure line the one connected to the center of the pump and the return the other or is it the other way around?

Thanks
