Seizing Powersteering fluid need a part number

Hey guys, my lower powersteering line off the bottom of the pump is hemmoraging out powersteering fluid and I'm looking for the part number for that hose.

Also to kill two birds with one stone, I just replaced my ignition relay and for a couple weeks it worked fine. Now lately I have to cross the terminals to get the truck to start. So I'm wondering if I got a bad relay or possibly a corrodid wire to the relay, anybody have any thoughts on where the problem might be at.

You mean the starter relay? You could have an "infant mortality" part. Or it could be a ground issue. Unlike the glow plug relay, the coil circuit on the starter relay completes by grounding through the mounting. If the base is rusty, or the mounting bolts, that'll interfere.

Yes the starter relay is what I meant you're correct. Also where does the relay start it's ground at the terminals on the relay are good the nuts are a little rusted it but everything on the relay is new besides the connecting nuts.
