Bad power steering leak

3983 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  68RT
Already replaced both power steering hoses few years ago, now my '74 Valiant Brougham is leaking power steering fluid quite badly where the return hose valve body attaches to the steering box. Anyone got any home fixes without giving NAPA $55 for a master seal kit. I was told there's only an o-ring there and no gasket between the mating surfaces. So hows it leaking then? The bolts are plenty tight. This has been getting progressively worse for awhile now. Gotten ridiculous though as I have to fill the reservoir every time I go into town! Do I remove the valve body and look for something? Should I visit Pick-n-Pull? Any help or knowledge is appreciated- thanks!

There are more than one o-ring in there. Take it apart and replace the o-rings.
