Help .... Seals or o-rings on power steering pressure line ?

I've already beat the search engine to death ....

I've got a (new) 92 PS pump in a 5.0 to 67 Cougar Install

... custom PS line was made with used 92 Pump pressure fitting.

What seals or O-rings should I or can I replace where the hose connects to the pump ?

... one seal in groove on fitting to pump looks pretty good (I picked and chose the best fitting + O-ring from several in the boneyard).

When I put the hose in the pump, it spins freely .... is this right ?

The new pump came with a funny looking O-ring inside a teflon sleeve ... I didn't see this on any of the hoses I pulled in the boneyard.

Does the funny teflon thing + o-ring actually work on a 92 pressure line ?

Anybody got a drawing of the correct (92) pressure line + o-ring and/or seal locations ?

I think a picture of your setup would help.

TTT - please help

Anyone who has ever connected the pump end
of the high pressure power steering hose on a 5.0.

- What seal(s) go on that end of the line ?

... is it just the rubber o-ring that sits in the groove on
the end of the fitting as shown in the attached picture ?

- two fittings on the right are from a 92 5.0 crown vic
and a 92 5.0 Mustang

- after tightening, is the line supposed to switvel freely ?
... if so, how will it ever seal if it is so "loose" ?

All you need is that o ring, and then tighten the fitting. It'll have some slight movement but it won't freewheel around. That's to compensate for engine movement. I'd suggest using the 1992 style fitting.
