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.

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

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.

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.

On my truck the calibration sticker is only about 1/2"x2" and is on the door frame not the door.


Got a better pic. The fitting the fluid is getting past is the new silver one
Have you checked that it isn't cross threaded?

Is the big silver nut that it screwed into tight? It's one of those isn't? Like a big silver nut on the pump? That's where the Teflon seal goes, that thing was tightend down first, then the hose wasnput on yes?

The fitting that has the Teflon seal is fine its the opposite end that threads into the steering box that's leaking. I can see fluid coming right passed the threads. Its not cross threaded. It went in easily by hand then wrench

Then I'm not sure man. You'll see this a lot with flare fittings, but loosening and retightening will usually fix it.

Pretty sure I got it to stop leaking. Took it out and put some of the yellow liquid thread sealer on. Thanks for replies everybody.
