1995 Thunderbird Power steering pump

I apologize, this is not Jeep question and thats only because my Jeep runs great right now.

I dont know where else to put this...
I am requesting any assistance I can get for the installation of a PS pump on my 1995 Thunderbird 4.6L V-8.
I am attaching a pic as a reference.
I have the pump mounted to the side of the engine but I am noticing that there is quite a bit of play in the hard line connection that I have circled. I am thinking that this line should be tight and unable to move as to avoid a leak but I cannot tighten it anymore. Can anyone here tell me if I might be missing an O-ring or something. I did not put any O-rings on when I screwed said line to the side of the PS pump. Thank you!



Jason

Well, I had a leak but don't know where from. It looked to be coming from this connection but its hard to see. I took the pump off today and installed a new one but now this line has some play in it and it makes me weary of wanting to test it.
