    I decided to put my power steering back on my 74 mav 302. I have every thing but the pressure hose and the return line my pump uses 5/8s male. then i get lost. I think my problem is that i dont know which is the high port and which is the return line on the control valve. Thank guys

    Line with smaller fitting is the pressure port.

    Rockauto may have them, I found my hoses on ebay.

    Pressure hose is likely two piece, at least mine is.

    All I have is pict of orig lines. Appears both were two piece but replacement return is cut to length.

    I reused my the pump end of pressure line, that one was all but new when I bought car.

    Fleabucket pict, not sure it'll show.
