i noticed today after warming up my VR4 that i have some power steering fluid leaking from the 17mm nut that connects the line on top of the pump. so i cleaned it all off and made it look dry, then started it up again and noticed it was wet again!!! from the top of the pump where the line is connected, question is can I just get some new copper washers and replace the old ones? any help would be awesome! Thanks Shane.

New copper crush washers in addition to an O-ring that's rests within the inner circumference of the line.

Got part numbers by chance? The oring for the front seal would be nice too. I installed mine today... Didn't have too much faith in the rubber.
