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

Return line has clamps. Pressure has hydraulic crimps
