    Anyone know what this fitting is and where it goes? Seems to have a cap on so it's not connected...
    That's the bleed fitting so you can bleed air out of the line.

    Or so it is for 1991, anyway.

    Bleed fitting

    Thanks! I guess that is on the pressure line? Is the bleed fitting a separate part?

    Used on the assembly line I think.

    For bleeding, the shop manual recommends pulling a vacuum on the reservoir as a service procedure, should the normal 'wheels in the air, lock-to-lock while turning the engine over without starting' method not work out well.

    I don't see it included in any pressure or return lines. Is it part of the pressure line?

    The pressure and return lines are soft lines/hoses that connect that assembly to the pump, but there is additional network of hard lines/metal tubes on the assembly that transfer fluid under pressure to the left and right sides of the rack that are also connected to the gear housing. The gear housing is the section where the steering wheel shaft is connected and holds the main valve assembly.

    That fitting is on a tee on one of the hard line fittings, at the gear housing, on the rack and pinion assembly. I don't see it pictured in any diagrams in the manual, including the assembly explosion diagram. As well, I don't see it described, or referred to by any name. I think for your purposes, you can ignore it.
