Power Steering Box Port Connections

I need to identify the supply (high pressure) and return line on the Power Steering box on a 1982 CJ7. I marked them on paper when I took the CJ7 apart over a year ago and cant find my notes. The Hayanes manuel does not show the PS Box connections.

One connection is up front on the box, almost in line with the steering shaft. The other line is offset to the passenger side and back a ways from the front of the box. WHich port is Pressure to the box.

I am having new lines made up. I know the PS Box has two different size fittings, does anyone know the sizes of the fittings and which port they go on.

I tried searching, but with my 24.4K dial up, I am very limited in a search effort.

Thanks

I just did mine a couple weeks ago but am having a hard time remembering which one was which. I will say though that I was able to get the hoses from Napa as OEM replacements. Also, if I remember correctly the fittings on the PS box were the same size, the fitting for the pressure line on the pump was smaller. I'm sure someone will pipe up with the line placement.

Even though both lines take a 18mm flare wrench to install/remove, one line is smaller in thread size than the other so you can't mix them up.

I can not use OEM hoses. My CJ now has a B3.3 Cummins and I had to mount the PS Pump on the Passenger side. Thus my need for fitting size on the PS Pump.

OK then, the pressure line will connect to the port that is more towards the front and passenger side of the gearbox. The pressure line also connects to the lower fitting on the power steering pump.

The return line will connect to the port that is more towards the rear and drivers side of the gearbox. The return line also connects to the upper fitting on the power steering pump.

A good hydraulic shop can take a stock hose, pull the fittings off of it and install them onto a hose that will fit your application.
