PS cooler?

Trying to fix a bad PS leak on my 91 XR7, I *think* it is at the connection from the steering, fun. In trying to trace the lines it would appear that there is a power steering cooler connected at the lower front passenger side, does this make sense? I've search in the forums and online but cant find any mention of a stock PS cooler on these cars. If they did come with one and i need to replace the pressure line, the only lines I see available seem to not equipped for a PS cooler, in other words they connect from the pump directly to the gear. Does this sound right?

The PS cooler is part of the return line. It leaves the rack, goes through the cooler, and returns to the pump. So if you need to replace the pressure line, you don't have to worry.

Thanks Chris, that explains a lot. Would you suggest going in from the top or dropping the rack to get that line disconnected and replaced? Doesn't look like too much room is there but if I remove the battery and washer res it may be do-able. The Haynes manual isn't much help as they show diagrams for the 3.8L which allows for plenty more room than the 5.0L. Step 3 in the rack removal is to disconnect the lines like they are readily accessible
