I don't remember how much pressure is in the PS low pressure hose. Got a leaker and don't remember where I got the rubber hose for the last one I fixed. I think it was some fuel injection fuel hose, good for about 300psi, that I used on that PS line.

Thoughts??

Low pressure can use a speed clamp, (screw type hose clamp), and just ordinary hydraulic hose, I do not believe there is any pressure in the return line. I see them fixed all the time with a speed clamp, so the pressure is next to nothing.

Agree hardly any pressure. I used fuel line and a regular hose clamp on mine.

Thanks for the responses - I'll get a hose today and clamp it on the old fittings.
