Problems with power steering pump

Well i am in the process of finishing up my motor swap in my 86 cj7. I am swapping in a 360 v8 out of a 79 j-10. The problem i am having is that when i go to hook up the power steering lines to the back of the 360 power steering pump, the one line that threads in won't fit. Was wondering if anybody else has had this problem and what you did to correct it.

Thanks,
Ben

I had the same problem. Well that and the hoses were to short I ended up going to the local tractor repair shop and had the hoses custom made to fit.

Yup, just find a local hydraulic shop to make some new lines for you. There's usually a Parker equipment supplier in just about every town.

There's nothing wrong with the hose/lines. Swap out the fitting on the back of the pump. Use the one from your other pump, or just use your other pump.

Do as Pavement Pounder said.

Anything '79 or older uses SAE inverted flare fittings. Anything '80 and newer uses a metric, o-ring type fitting.

The fittings on the back of the pump that the lines attach to just unscrew from the pump itself.
