Marty 52;

Spindles are fine, they move freely unhooked and are well lubed. Also cylinders activate correctly, but I don't know how much pressure they are generating. Obviously not enough.

Errin OH;

I looked up that cardone pump you mentioned and it sure looks right to me & they are readily available at $125 to $150. All the tractor places have them priced from $500 to $700 , go figure!

If it's the right pump at $125 I'll replace it just on general principle.

Sean in PA; Thanks for the current spec #. Got any idea what off the shelf readily available product I should get for a test run on this pump? I'm really thinking this dexron VI is not the ticket

Jeff PK ;

Where is this control valve you mentioned? In the pump or in the steering box? I don't have the shop manuals yet. Boy do I hope it's in the pump.

By the way I do have good fluid return to the pump reservoir

Thanks guys..I'll keep at it a while longer

control valve is attached to the steering box. The tubes from the cylinders and the pump all run to it---down under the dash. If it starts leaking hydro fluid low, or high at the wheel, along the steering column you have a busted seal...

I was afraid you were going to say that. I peeked under there and there is no sign of leakage. The shop manuals are on the way now, so I'll have a look at the degree of difficulty and maybe I can find a rebuild kit for that valve and have a go at it.

So far I'm only the price of a battery and manual into this thing.

4 tires will be a bit pricey. Electrical won't be bad, so if I can catch a break on this power steering I should have a real good machine for less than $2500. When I got it I thought it was only 20 or so years looks great. Given the fact that it is 55+ years old I think I'll give it a little more TLC.

Thanks for your help
