bad news, thats a single use 1 piece union the the hose "clips" into. Once clipped in it doesnt come back out, so its a new hose and union for you.

you can but the new unions for under $20, you need a dremmel with a cut off disc and slice the old union down both sides and split it open, then replace with the new union. Make sure you dont cut too far through the union with the dremmel and touch the pipe end within.

Done heaps of these...

I got the union off without cutting it - just can't remember how.

The setup is designed to swivel, so that's normal, it seals by o ring and the pipe is held in by a c clip.

Check the blunt barb on the pipe for wear, and make sure it clicks in properly - you'll find out while it's running if it hasn't - T minus 8 secs to drain the P/S fluid when the pipe pops out.

There's a o-ring there. I got a new one from Fraud for like 5$ or some ridiculous price!
New hose should come with them - they do with the Repco ones at least...
