powersteering line busted

Hey all!

So I'm in Australia and my dad was driving my truck back home periodically to keep things going. Apparently the powersteering line from the pump to the arm has busted.

Before he replaces it is there anything that I should do/add/mod? Would hate to buy the parts then later on have to change it.

I appreciate it!!!

Depending on how long it ran without fluid in the pump, youay need to replace the pump too. Maybe. If you want to upgrade, then you can install a Saginaw pump with aftermarket mounting kit if its in your budget.

It didn't even move lol. He started it up, went to turn the wheels and *pop*!

So I believe the pump is good.

Well, I can't think of anything else to check. New hose and they is a nice DIY YouTube video on how to flush the system. Inspect the other hoses for dry rot and rusted crimps on the ends.

Hopefully the pump didn't over pressurize causing the blown hose. BTW, the pumps are very cheap. Ford used these on a lot of vehicles. Not for certain, but I think even the Taurus.
