72 280 SEL 4.5 - 81 VW Rabbit - 85 XJS - 86 XJ6
So I had just gotten back from a 500 mile road trip and my power steering was growling. I opened the hood to find a bit of a mess on the drivers side of the engine. After cleaning it off, I found that the fluid was leaking from around the top of the reservoir lid, under the wing nut that secures it. When you turn the wheel, a fine mist escapes from under the nut. I assume that while I was adding fluid, possibly in a not so well lit environment, there was some sort of washer I lost? I asked the local mechanic (I am away at school so I couldn't take it to my usual mechanic) if there was something that "should" be there and he "didn't know". I swear I remember something being there, but can anyone point me in the right direction and if there is something missing, maybe tell me where I can get it? I guess if I just have to rig something I will but any suggestions as to a proper fix are greatly appreciated.
