Quick help with PS box leak please!
I replaced my power steering box last weekend, and i thought it was good to go. Yester day though i noticed a leak after my pump reservoir was empty. This is a strange one.
The high presure line line nut is leaking. I see pin point bubbles and small amounts of fluid coming from the base of the line nut where it screws into the box. I can verify that the nut is tight and it is not cross threaded. Both the line and the box are new.
Here is the question: Can i use a little teflon tape to seal those threads? It would seem to be the natural fix, but i am not sure the tape can hold that presure. What do you guys think? Thanks- Tim
