chevy high pressure power steering hose

I have a 71 Chevelle and the high pressure power steering hose has a crack in the steel part of the line about 1/4 inch from the end. In trying to find a hose it looks like the ends are both male ends. My hose is male on the steering box but female on the pump. Can some one look at theirs and see if it has two male ends or a male and female. I am going to have a new hose made tomorrow. I would like to know if someone changed the fitting in the back of the pump or what?

It's just a double inverted flared fitting. Buy an adapter.

Actually its a 7/16 inverted flare on one ond and a 3/8 flare on the other. I have a shop making a new hose. They dont have the inverted flare end so its going to be 3 days unutil they get it in. My only regret is the old one was chromed and they dont have the chrome ends. I guess I will have to braid it so it wont detract from the car.

Which end is the hard one to get? You can replace the pressure fitting on the back of the power steering pump with one from GM or a j/y with something more common. If I was going to have something custom made (with my luck) I would go ahead and have them make 2...one for the trunk.

The one on the pump is the odd ball one. I am not worried about it as its not a critical application. If this one goes bad I will pull the belt and drive it home with out the power steering. I did get the new hose today cost 40 bucks but it doesnt leak. The stainless braid I had is too small to fit over it so I will have to get some larger for it.
