George, standing at the rear of your bus, your lines will be on a bracket in the upper right hand corner, one line to the reservour and one to the pump. You will probably be changing the pump to a higher pressure pump for the Sheppard, the old lines can be reused (as I did) when finished remove the external steering stops on the axel, the Sheppard has internal stops and you will result in a tighter turning radius. use 5 or 10 wt. engine oil for steering fluid and you will love it....I changed mine out ten years ago, using a flaming hack saw to remove all U bolts and so forth it took me 8 man hours to convert.>>>Dan

i looked for the lines are they the copper ones that come up to the same place as the fuel lines? are they copper all the way forward? that sure will make things easier. someone removed the old power steering pump and reservoir
