Power Steering Hose Connections

1999 Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7 with Quadra Drive.
My vehicle is leaking Power Steering Fluid from the metal joint just to the left side of the Power Steering reservoir. I don't know if the metal pipe is a union fitting and just needs tightening, or if the metal pipe has a slight fracture.
I am reluctant to attempt to tighten the flange nut any tighter, in case I shear the pipe any more.
Does know know where I could see a parts graphic showing the connections at the Power Steering Reservoir?

If its a 99 it probably has the old style connector, jeep redesigned it at some point due to the eventual leak. I tried tightening it and installing a new I ring but that didn't help, the replacement works perfectly.
