Vortech P/S leak

I know that this is kinda of a well known problem with the power steering line on Vortech SC'd cars . Has anyone found a way to fix it. Mine has gotten to the point that on a 2 hour drive I have to fill it up again. This is after we took it off looked everything over and reinstalled and yes tightened down. I heard that there is a O-ring that goes on it but mine does not have one. No I did not install my kit so I do not know if one goes there. Anyone? If it is a O-ring anyone know what size?

No O-ring man.. Trust me I installed mine myself (broke both my arms doing it, heh) and I just cranked those fittings down as tight as the wrenches could handle. I still get a drip but im at the FULL as I was 5 months ago in the reservoir.

I would suggest having the person who installed it double check. Then you option of changing the connection with what some people have done as an alternative (which I do not have a link for but maybe someone does, im heading to bed) GL man..
