Also if it leaks when you shut it off it's the return,if while running it's the pressure side.

Jammin James i run the power steering box without the pump although i didnt just cap it off. I took a syringe( can be bought at the local IFA ) and filled the box as much as I could then I cut the old lines off the hose and got some rubber tube and connected them together so the fluid could run back and forth if need be. Was told not to just cap them off. Eddie

you can buy a seal kit for about 12 bucks. also, redneck was right you need to run a hose from each port, conecting the two together.
