I'm sucking at searching for this. 01 5.3 with stock power steering pump and I can figure out the size for hooking the hydro line to the pump. I know this is done a million times and I've searched and been on psc and every other vender and lost. A lil help here.

I tig welded an AN6 fitting to my ps line but I know you can also get an 8mm compression fitting to adapt to AN6 as well.

But you still need the adapter for the pump with a swivel now right?

I'm guessing that the pump fitting is on the OTHER end of the pictured line.

AFCO 37130 replaces the the fitting completely. It's marketed for the TC pump, but it works in the P pump as well. Converts to -6 (3/8 JIC). I have Goat Built brackets on my 5.3 and the fitting is close to the head, but nothing hits.

Cost about $20 from Speedway

And I don't believe this is right because the ls pump is metric not 1/2 x20. Its 16mm.
