Power Steering Woes

Has anyone fixed their power steering system without replacing the lines? Was your system leaking not because of a busted line but because of a loose connection somwhere? If so, what and where was it on the power steering system?

Wiped the entire system down, filled it, took it for a short drive and turned the wheels a couple times. Found a small leak it's on the big fluid line going from the power steering pump to the hardlines at the bottom where the system is bolted to the tension rod bracket. It got pretty dark before I could get under there and inspect the bottom. Does anyone know if there's a way to tighten that connection or something? I want to try all options before I have to replace that expensive S.O.B! Just my luck, why couldn't it be one of the cheap hoses near the resevoir with a pinhole leak in it! I miss my @@#$%$$$ powersteering!!!!!
