Default Power steering pump on my GP

My GP's Power steering sounds like it is churning rocks. I attempted to change it out, but the hard line (pressure line) is rusted on and I couldn't get it off.

I need someone who can work on this for me.

thanks!

If you spray PB Buster on the rusted connections and the bolts, Let sit for a day and soak, They will come loose.

Yep! Spray 'er down with PB blaster and let it sit. Put some elbow grease on it and it'll come loose!!

If that doesn't work, use a mini-torch!! That thing works miracles for me (Just be careful though )

IIRC, you can buy the hardline if you still cannot get it off, and swap that over too

if the hardline is rusted inside the 5/8ths hex line nut, use vise grippes and clamp on each pair of flats (on the hex) to try and break the rust flakes....

if that doesnt work you can go ahead and break it free, remove the pump and unscrew the pump from the fitting (rock motor forward), replace the oring and thread the new pump onto the line, IROR

BTW, hardline is a PITA because the shit is usually rusted and it's hard to reach lol. I'd try everything to get the bolt off the pump before even thinking about hardline!
