Sadly you need another pump, I bought a rebuilt one for $40 without the resevior at Oriely's. Do not remove the high pressure line from the check valve on the side of the pump! I did and had to buy new nylon orings for the line only to find out that the seal inside the fitting on the high pressure line (pump end) was bad too. Not even the Ford dealers had another hose like mine....
So i had to pay a tech to cut the old fitting off and he gave me a fitting with a new oring and brass snap ring in it.
and trust me I searched high and low and even called Ford Motor Company main parts number and they do not make the high pressure line with MY fittings anymore, not even a hydraulic shop could make me a hose...
