You need to get a -6AN x 18mm adapter (I think this is the kick size) and a -6AN adapter for the pump and then you can make your own pressure hose using reusable fittings. It will cost about $40 bucks for the adapters, fittings and hose.
The cool thing about these hoses are that they are repairable. I havent had a hose made since I started using them. The fittings are available in a varity of angles etc. so you can plumb it any way you want.
i have set up 2 toyota/gm power steering systems and have found it easiest to cut the hardlines that come out of both the pump and the box about 2-5 inches out (basically before they turn into the soft line). i then braze a standard flare fitting to that (you can get flare "plugs" and drill them to the size of the hard line). i go to my local hose/fitting shop and have a standard hydraulic hose made with standard flare fittings on each end. each hose cost about $10-15.
i like it this way because i don't have to order/wait for parts that i "hope" are the right ones, and i can do it at midnight if i choose and be running tommarow.
I have to make these handy little pics casue im always messing up what all the sizes are and then when i adapt etc...
Scawfish is dead on ! AN stuff rules.
Its a bit more $ up front, but once you learn the basics and learn what sizes you have/need you dont "waste" anything, I keep a supply handy to do general stuff, that and its easily repaired...
I order AN stuff from summitracing, speedway aka speedwaymotors.com and reciently from http://www.anplumbing.com/ great $ on earls stuff,
I think people have preferences becasue thats what they have near then, have used before, or have been exposed to. For me its easier to order a pile of fittings and hose and build it, rather than take time off of work to goto a shop and explain to them what i want and have them do it for me..
