The fittings (#60) that screw into the pump also take O rings, if loose they can leak, but can also be tightened. You can match up the O rings at any good hydraulic or power trans. house.

If it is indeed leaking from the middle of the elbow ( unlikely) then ya gotta replace the hose assy.
lawnsaspire,sorry should have explained it better than I did.Thought it was a flair fitting that is sealed when the flair nut compresses the flair to the mating surface.Looks like you have plenty of help now.
