    Default power steering pump

    I am rebuilding a 350 that we think was from a 79 truck.
    The power steering pump has 3 hoses on it. I expected 2....
    Any suggestions on what to do with the 3rd hose?
    I am still cleaning it off, trying to find a part #.
    This is my first rebuild so I am still learning all the parts options.

    Thanks.
