On the back of a basic GM power steering pump, which line is the RETURN line ---on top or the one on the very bottom? Also has anybody used a filter for there ps line? If so what type of filter?
Thanks again Peeps

Well, what I would call the "run of the mill" GM (Saginaw) pump usually has one threaded (pressure) port and one hose-clamped (return) port.

Can you post a pic if this is not what you have?

Don

PS.
One idea for a filter, if you think it's nessecary, would be a remote-mount spin-on engine oil filter adapter. About he only thing that I recall seeing a filter on was an Eaton pump on a Ford Louisville 700 series grain truck.
