    Ive been running my truck without fixing the tear hoses and refilling the power steering. Now ive finnally got some extra funds and kinda want to get it fixed. Is there any other problems that might have been damaged due to lack of maintanance, fuel pump etc.? ive attached a picture of which hoses were torn; also is there an online shop which I can just purchase a the feeder hose assembly? since the return hose can be easily replaced with conventional hoses from auto parts stores.

    Did you ever find a fix for this? My return hose is leaking somewhere around the fittings near the your arrows and I have to fix it soon. I was thinking about just taking some fuel lines and clamping them on, but I don't know how feasible that is cause I haven't looked at the actual hose assembly. Someone mentioned somewhere that fuel lines weren't compatible with powersteering fluid, but I don't know how true that is. Anyone have any ideas?
