Default Power Steering Pressure Line Leaking at Steering Gear

I know nothing about power steering. Not that I know alot about anything else....

I think this is the pressure line
pic hose going into steering gear:

hose going into pump:

I'm changing my thermostat, the gasket is welded to water outlet and block, that's another thread - was taking a break from tedious scraping and was looking at radiator hoses, and saw the leakage.

The hose going into steering gear is a little loose, I can jiggle it around a bit.

I can't find anything on google about this, maybe I'm searching for the wrong thing.

Can it be tightened?

Need a new line?

If so, special tools needed?

Is it easy?

Any input greatly appreciated.

The line is made to fit loose but has an o-ring seal in the nut.

Thanks Nate,
That's what I couldn't find. I guess those are factory o-rings?

After reading the entire page, I'm going to clean it up and see how bad the leak is. I know it hasn't lost very much from the reservoir. If it needs to be done, I'll look up those tools and try and locate the o-rings, in the meantime I've got other fires to put out with that truck.

You can get the o-rings at any autoparts store and even home depot or lowes.
