After the Chevy and the Jeep hoses where spliced together, the hoses fit just right.

Covered with the split loom, they look OEM.

Initially, I didn't think about this at all. But, trying to hook up the CJ power steering lines to the Chevy motor's power steering pump revealed a couple problems. First, they were too long & the wrong shape. Second, they had the wrong fitting on the end. I needed a power steering hose with a Chevy end and a Jeep end - essentially a "conversion" hose. I had both supply and return hoses from both the donor Chevy truck as well as the CJ. The return hose could be cut & spliced, as it was a low-pressure hose-clamp affair, but what about the pressure hose? Local hydraulic shops butchered my OEM hoses once - I didn't have enough tubing left to try a 2nd one. I needed a power steering hose shop.

Searching the web, I found Magill's. I sent them my marked-up chevy hose and marked up Jeep hose. The final result works well. My alignment marks still visible in the picture to the right. The second picture is a close-up of their quality workmanship. If you look closely and you can see the splice. With the Chevy donor-supplied split loom covering the hoses, you can't tell it's not an OEM piece.

Visible under the frame is the AGR Power steering box.
