power steering lines

Hey everyone. I just got the mh out of dry dock ( 87 allegro p-30 454 motor) and I blew the high pressure line that runs from the hydro boost to the steering box. the previous owner did a splice job on it before. The line I took out is steel and the autoparts store replacement is a steel/rubber combo. does anybody know what it should be? also what is recommended for power steering fluid?
Thanks a bunch

Often the OEM replacement part is changed over time and only the later version is sold.

Rather than an auto parts store, you might check with a local Chevy/GMC truck dealer.

Also check with a local Hydraulic repair shop and see what they can do for a replacement hose.
