You got to remember there is nearly another quart caught in the steering box and the hyro-booster...What I do is disconnect the return line from the PS pump and cap that nipple. The route the the return line back to a waste bucket. The start the ngine and rock the steering left or right till the pump runs dry. This only takes a few seconds and then shut down the engine. The re-fill and do again. I do this till the system is completely purged out. Then hook up the reutrn line and re-fill... This should help...

If I'm not mistaken the oil feed comes off the vacuum pump feed line and heads up to the P-pump. So there should be a braided oil line that runs up to the P-pump that most likely have a banjo bolt holding it on. As for exactly where I'm not sure. I've never had the pleasure of working on a 12V 2nd gen yet...
