2port S5 rack to ford 302 pump.Problem.

I think I may have the lines mixed up as the steering will snap to the right when I try to turn the wheel.
Can I get PICS of the S5 rack outlets and their corresponding hoses?
OR can someone who has hooked up a Ford 302 pump to a 2 port rack tell me where the heck the hoses connect?..
THANKS GENTS!
STYX!~

You do have it hooked up backwards. I don't have a pick, but I remember years ago when I was in tech school we hooked up a rack backwards and it did the exact same thing.

Never assume that the parts you get are what you need!

The Hose that was with the car had the connections and I attached them and THIS was what I got..Wham..

SO,I forage the country side for someone to make a Frakkin line..Can I get a Hydraulic line done by a Hydraulic PLACE?..NO...What the Living Buzzard is up with that???

So..snowplows have hydraulics and YES we are Canadian and have....YES.....places that repair plows.
I am getting a line done tomorrow and the "other line"?...gonna chop it and use it as Return since it no longer needs the special doo-dad on it!

YEP..it was the lines.

Future TECH INFO on 2 port Rack:
the HIGH pressure is the port that is Closest to the TOP of the rack at the Steering shaft and has the "straight line" in the port.(17mm wrench takes the line off the rack)
The LO pressure has the Horseshoe shaped pipe and 19mm banjo bolt on it.

Just a Little Update:
If this happens..Check for LEAKS!

The slamming of the wheel to one side caused the input shaft seal to get squished and it eventually failed and blew fluid out of the steering rack!
Good news is that you can change the seal while the rack is in the car..(my case anyways..)
Bad News is to try and get the Seal Kit...In Canada..within 2 weeks...before the snow flies!

UPDATE!...well my hands are getting a work out ..(I'm either using manual steering or playin with my *****!).
I still don't like the manual steering so I am going to look back at that option Again.I didn't really want it But I settled for it to get the car on the road..which I did.(drove it again today..Yay!)
I like the car,the sound,the paint,the Audio system..the only thing is you can't Give it **** and be fully confident that you have total control of the car.It just seems like you have to work the steering..
I wanna be able to Stab the gas pedal to the Floor and comfortably handle the car.
I fully believe that going to the Power steering setup will make this thing a Real FUN toy!

Anyways,not doing it this season..Summer was **** and it's almost over,so I am gonna drive it while I can.
Cheers Guys.
