    The PS pump on the 10 has 2 ports on the reservoir, I just assumed the large on on the bottom (Red) was the return, and the smaller one (yellow) was an overflow (in case you fill it to much). When I went to fill it today, I had fluid coming out of both, are they both returns? Any help would be appreciated.

    One line is for High Pressure (1600 psi +) and the other is low pressure.

    There is no overflow other than straight up to the cap (messy).

    Haha
    Yes the dreaded nylon swivel inside the hose that gets eaten by ATF+4 fluid.

    Oops Dodge, oops.

    the big hose is the suction/supply hose to the pump and the small one is the oil return to reservoir
