I have a 72 mustang with a 429 engine in it. originally it was a 351 cleveland but the guy who i bought the car from put the 429 in. I had to replace the power steering pump along with the hi pressure and return hose and now fluid leaks out the top of the fitting on the hi pressure hose on the end connected to the steering gear. there isnt air in the lines because i already fixed that.

Yes, It shouldn't be leaking there. There is a lot of pressure on that hose. If you seal it and tighten it and it still leaks, my guess is that the fitting is cracked. You might have just gotten a bad hose.
