Power Steering leaking

I have a Mustang II frontend on my 51 Chevy car. I noticed under the car some fluid? Looks to be leaking right at the steering rack where the pump lines connect too? Does the fitting need to have a crush washer or something like that. I believe there is a low pressure side as well as a high pressure side. Any help would be appreciated, I might have the wrong fitting on it? I just used a pretty anodized one from Earls supply.
Thanks
