Can you tell me how to replace the pressure and the return line of the power steering hoses. The pressure side hose is leaking.

Every repair manual I have sourced does not cover this repair. It also looks like this is going to be an extremely difficult replacement.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

There is no set procedure. Disconnect hoses at both ends and remove and replace !

Thanks for the Feedback ... If you had asked regarding the dropping of the frame you would have got the answer you desired .. you can remove the lines without dropping the frame using a readily avaliable tool .. I know this as fact, because I have done this on numerous occassions... Alas, as you seem to feel I do not know what I am talking about .. I will leave you to struggle on .. In future I would think about and ask another question before leaving negative feedback on something you clearly know nothing about. !!!

Your second response to my inquiry confirmed the procedure I set forward to you in the removal of the power Steering Lines from the steering rack.

I suspect my knowledge of automobiles over the last forty years of tinkering with classic cars far surpasses your experience.

My question was straight forward and should have generated a complete answer.

In any event a sarcastic answer deserves a response.
