Question about 1996 Ford Aerostar Extended

1 Answer

Power steering hose o-rings

I didn't pay attention to the 2 0-rings when I took the high pressure hose off the power steering pump on my '96 Aerostar. The o-rings actually go on an adapter that screws into the pump. Are the 2 o-rings installed on the 2 "farthest on" grooves or are they on each end of the adapter with the empty groove in the middle?
