Power steering O ring

Just changed power steering pump on 65 Falcon Ranchero. I pump housing was leaking, NOT the hoses. I swear there was no teflon washer or O ring in the pressure hose. Now the pressure line leaks at the fitting. Bought a new pressure line and it didnt come with a washer or O ring. Do I need this? and if so, where does it go and why wouldnt the hose come with it?

Re: Power steering O ring

If anyone sees this, I learned that my application does not use an o-ring. Its a compression fit. Torque ratings were 21 to 30 foot pounds. I had to tighten it more like 35 to get it to stop leaking
