Default PS Hose Routing

Quick question for anyone with a 76-79 FC: on your power steering hose routing, does the low pressure hose on the top of the steering box go to the upper port on the side of the reservoir, or the lower port under the reservoir? Mine has the hose from the pump going to the side of the reservoir, which seems backwards to me. Seems like the bottom should feed the pump, not the side.

Ok, so in the attached image (which is my current routing) the two hoses on the reservoir need to be switched?

It should get fluid from the bottom of the tank.
As its plumbed,when the fluid gets low you will have no PS.

that's exactly what I was thinking, but that is how it was routed when I removed it. I'll switch them and call it a day.

It was wandering and a bit jerky, and if it was on an incline it seemed like there was almost no power steering and then it would all come on at once. My guess is the hoses being in the wrong spots had a good bit to do with that
