Power Steering Leak

I have a power steering leak where the pressure line connects to the rack. Does anybody know if there are any O-Rings on this line where it screws in to the rack. I had changed the rack about 8 months ago and there were no leaks, but do not remember if there were o-rings there or not. I found the line to be loose, secured it, but still leaks. It leaks between the "B" nut and the line that goes through the "B" nut on the rack. If anybody remembers the rack, it would be a great help. This line is not easy to get to when on car. If there are O-rings, where and what size do I need to get. Thank you

I just changed my rack and pinion this summer,and yes there are O-rings on these fittings. I believe there are two on each line. Do not know the sizes, but I am fairly certain there were two different sizes on each line. Probably just going to have to take them out and get them matched up at a parts store.

One of the best things I ever bought was a $10 assortment of o-rings. Has like 20 sizes or so and they're in a hard plastic case. Good thing to have around.

Fixed the leak!! Thanks guys for the help. The O-ring on the line under the B-nut was shot, didn't know there was one there, small little thing. Thanks again!
