Torque for power steering hollow nut

Hi all,

What's the torque or how tight should I tighten that hollow nut that attaches to the power steering pump.

I did buy a new gasket ring.

I noticed it was pretty hard to take off.

I also noticed a fair bit of hose was inside the pump. How do I know how much hose to insert, does it matter or should I just try going by what was already in there. (I know this question might sound a bit stupid)

Thanks all
