1970 Cougar. this hose is standard 3/8" power steering hose, but it seems kinda' long. has a big loop in it for no apparent reason. does this need to be a certain length, or can i just buy some new hose and cut it to fit between the pump and the block where the hose to the control valve joins it?

The hose is just a little tougher than 3/8" fuel line, you can get it by the foot (or in a 3 foot length prepackaged) at Advance.

Hope this helps,

Bob

Some return hoses come extra long, they are made to go to the P/S cooler, and then to the pump. If it's is too long, cut it off.
