Angry Power Steering lines leak --> pictures!

I'm working on a 1986 Nissan 720 4wd pickup. It's been leaving red splashes on my driveway, and the steering is rather rough. I've determined that it's a leak in one of the power steering lines-the recieving and returning lines (see pictures). I'm wondering what's the best, inexpensive, way to stop the leak? Taking it to the dealership is an absolute last resort. As you can see from the pictures, it appears the leak is coming from the block support. Also, the lines themselves seem pretty bad, but it'll cost lots to get them replaced. Trying not to do that...

Can I buy rubber lines to replace the bad sections? Would the rubber lines support the pressure of the powersteering?

What would be the best solution here?

Now pictures of said leak:

(I removed the screw from the support)


What do you guys suggest?

The return, pressure, and suction hoses are only $1.39 per foot at autozone. if that is too much, how can you afford to drive at all? My guess is that the pressure would be pretty high, so I wouldn't trust any old rubber hose.

I was talking about getting two, new metal lines for the power steering, the estimates I got over the phone were pretty steep. I know rubber hose is a cheap solution, that's why I opted for it, I was just wondering if it were the best choice. I was going to find some reinforced rubber lines.

well, these are tested up to 1000psi. the ones at auto zone. they are rubber, and $1.39 a foot. they would probably work.

I think he has probably gotten around to fixing his lines in the last 3 years....
