[xj] Which P/S hose is the pressure hose?

I have the engine and trans out of my '87 XJ6, and cut the P/S
hoses to get the engine out. I have to have a custom P/S
pressure line made (lump!). Which hose on the steering rack
is the pressure hose? I see that one hose is larger diameter,
but I’m not sure which one would be pressure, and which would
be the return. Thanks!–

Ha, from memory???.

The larger one (10mm pipe) is the return.

The smaller one (8mm pipe) is the pressure.

Some one else will surely yell out if I am wrong or right.–

Do you still have the old engine? Look at the back of the p/s pump. If one
if the hoses is simply clamped onto a nipple, that’ll be the return hose.

The hose with both ends with a threaded fitting would be
the pressure hose.
You can take the old hose to any seal and fitting place and
have a new hose fitted to those fittings.

I have a steering rack with two hoses, each about a foot long, cut
with no ends on them. The old engine is long gone. Otherwise, as
noted, it’d be easy to tell!–

The smaller hose (inside diameter) is usually the pressure hose.

If the same as my '88 XJ-S then, looking at the pinion housing, the hose
closest to the rack is
the high pressure hose, the hose closest to the steering shaft coupling
is the low pressure hose.
