Hose from reservior to PS pump

Simple question, Where do you get a hose to go from the reservoir to the pump? I checked autozone, and all they had was 5/8 heater hose. tried this and the fluid looks like its seeping through it as the hose appears wet at all times. So I need a new hose but what type do I get, cause there aren't a lot of choices in the 5/8 size?
thanks for the help

hose

they should have( power steering )hose. you have to ask for this type of hose . there is the return hose and a high pressure hose. heater hose is no good for this . you figured this out. try napa if they don't have it. they should have it to fit your specified car

5/8" power steering return line hose? I have never seen any thing over 3/8". Gas line safe hose will work fine since this is low pressure and it will resist the hydraulic fluid.

I bought some 1/2 inch (12.5 mm) hose rated to 300 psi for just over a $1.00 a foot from autozone. I had to go to a few of them before I found one with the right hose but they do have it.

Found this on thier web site

POWERCRAFT 81352 $1.39
3/8" HIGH PERFORMANCE POWER STEERING HOSE
(CUT TO FIT) PRICED PER FOOT

POWERCRAFT 81206 $1.99
3/8" INNER DIAMETER, 300" LENGTH, 1000 PSI,
275 F OIL TEMPERATURE, CUT TO FIT 24"

POWERCRAFT 71236 LLT $10.99
3/8" INNER DIAMETER, 36" LENGTH, 1000 PSI,
275 F OIL TEMPERATURE, CUT TO FIT 24"

POWERCRAFT 71206 LLT $21.99
3/8" INNER DIAMETER, 48" LENGTH, 1000 PSI,
275 F OIL TEMPERATURE, CUT TO FIT 24"

POWERCRAFT 70551 LLT $7.99
CUT TO FIT

POWERCRAFT 71224 LLT $6.99
3/8" INNER DIAMETER, 24" LENGTH, 1000 PSI,

The part numbers may help
Good luck

If there is a national or napa parts store near you..they sometimes do hydraulic hose for tractors and such and can fix one right up..

Exactly...about all you will be able to find that works is hydraulic hose.

If you can't find any local try www.mcmaster.com (lucky for me they are local).
