Default power steering leak fix

I've had a power steering leak in my 89 accord for a year now. I kept putting off the repair but just did it a month ago. I figure this might be useful to others.

I located the leak in a line bringing the fluid back from the gear towards the cooling loop. Looking down through the hood I could see fluid squirting out of the line in a small stream. I got a fuel line clamp and coated the inside with about 3mm thick in oil resistant silicone gasket maker. I let it cure and then clamped it over the leak. I haven't had an issue since.
