A friend of mine disassembled his power steering valve on a Ford 3000, and he cannot get it to work after re-assembly. Does anyone have a well-illustrated re-assembly procedure?? He says the manual isn"t good enough.

Have a look at the photo.
Set your block so the fitting is on your right side. That's the starboard side for you land lubbers. See the yellow pencil.
There are two types of plungers in the block.
I call them the special plungers and the plain plungers.
Notice the green pencil. That is the hole where the two special plungers and two balls go.
All the rest of the holes get two plain plungers with a spring in the middle.

Thanks Ultradog. Excellent presentation. I"ll keep this for future reference.

One question: "Notice the green pencil. That is the hole where the two special plungers and two balls go".

Do these special plungers/balls go in the hole side-by-side?? Or do they stack up?? Is there a spring involved??

If you set the block onto the steering column just like it sits in the picture you could load it from the top.
On the 3 holes with the plain plungers you would load the bottom plunger, then a spring, then the second plunger.
The special plungers have 'horns' on one end.
So you would load that hole with the first plunger horns up, then the two balls, then the second plunger horns down. There is no spring in that hole.
One other thing I should mention; The spool in the center of the valve does have a top and a bottom. On the inside of the spool there is a slight groove machined on one end. That end goes up.
