Power steering leak

I have a 95 7.3, new power steering pump and hose. Installed both today only to find out i have a major leak coming from the threads opposite the pump fitting. The new hose only came with a Teflon deal for the pump side no seals for the flared side. My question is, is there supposed to be an o ring or something to seal the flared side. If not how do I get it to stop seeping past the threads.

Re: Power steering leak

Look on the door jamb and see if there is a calibration code sticker all by itself.

Re: Power steering leak

If it's shaped sort of like a funnel then it doesn't take an oring. If it's the other kind that looks like it has a doughnut on it, then it does.

It is not tapered its more straight. Here is the link... https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/PSK72409

It is the fitting on the curved end not the hose end it looks straight to me. So the o ring would go just over the flare then thread the nut on top of it? Just unclear why the kit for the new hose would not come with a o ring if it was required, the hose had a white teflon o ring on the pump side but nothing on the other end.

Re: Power steering leak

The end furthest does not take an o ring. Can't see the other end close to the rubber, but I assume it's the same.

Try cracking it loose and tightening it again. That should stop the leak.

That's what I thought. But however, fluid is seeping past the threads on the steering box side have no idea how to stop it.
