I'm not sure I really blame A&A's fitting for leaking considering the KRC fitting leaked. I'm now using the Aeroquip torqued to 28 ft/lb with an extension and universal. As frustrating as it has been, I write it off as the price we pay when we tinker on cars. I still don't like that the hose touches the steering box and nearly touches the joint in the steering shaft. Over time, I worry that the hose will rub through.

I drove it a couple of more times and haven't had to add PS fluid. Fingers are still crossed.

i agree about possible hose rubbing through. i may spend time next time it apart and bend a hard tubing to fit.

If you make something that can be easily reproduced, I'd love to see/buy it.
