1984 Defender 110 power steering line washer/seal (low pressure side)
I have air getting into my power steering system. I'm pretty sure it's on the low pressure side where the line from the reservoir meets the pump. I replaced the rubber on the low pressure side, and removed and inspected the high pressure line. It was made in 1999 and looks in great shape so believe it is ok (and i think sicne there are no leaks and air is getting in, not fluid getting out, that this is not to blame.
I am not sure what kind of seal I am supposed to have where the low pressure line meets the pump. Right now under the round head, there is a square edged seal sitting in a channel around the hole. It looks like it has compressed over time and could be replaced. There is no washer/seal on the top side of the round housing between the bolt and the housing and I assume there should be one - one of those metal washers with a inner rubber seal built in I assume.
Does anyone know what should be there, and how to source them? I'm going to try some right stuff today, but would really like to get the right seals on it.
