Now's a good time to put a new pressure-side hose on if the old one is deteriorating or leaking. We actually replaced both hoses when we swapped in the new 408 small-block a few months back, so we were in good shape. With the CPP-supplied adapter fittings screwed into the steering box, we attached the lines using 11/16-inch (pressure) and 5/8-inch (return) line wrenches. A proper line wrench will reduce the possibility of doing damage to the fittings, which are prone to leakage if they become misshapen.
