Ok, another dumb rookie question...but how do I hook up my power steering? I have an '82 Cutlass stock steering box, a Sweet P/S pump and the Sweet aftermarket reservoir tank, and the full Sweet hose and fittings kit. Which holes are "In" and "Out" on the box and pump? I take it that on the reservoir the hole on the side is "IN" and the hole on the bottom is "Out" and I think the hose sizes in the kit are #8 and #10. So how do I plumb this thing?
Thanks in advance!

hey sled

the pump small line goes to box the bigger line @ the pump goes to the res then the big line @ res to the pump

when you get your car figured out for winston let me know i want to come down and race there @ least once to try the track

Hey Joe, maybe I'm reading it wrong, but that gives me three lines on the pump and only one line to the box.

Are you the same Joe Taylor who used to pit at Berlin?

Big line on the pump goes to the big fitting on the reservoir, little line on the pump goes to the small fitting on the box, big fitting on the box goes to the little fitting on the reservoir.
