5000 power steering

1968 5000 diesel, has a "catch" in the power steering when turning to the right. Not always in the same place (I think), but gets stuck for a 1-5 seconds then releases. It has gradually gotten better over time through no action of my own, but persists. Workable but annoying.

Any ideas how to fix?

My other models but similar type Fords, I have run into problems with the mechanical stuff not working right.

One the bearings in the bottom of the axle tubes ground away, and the other the previous owner never greased the vertical tubes and they rusted up terrible. Both seemed like the power steering was locking up, but it was actually catching on something mechanical and the power steering just couldnt move it.

Most likely the linkage for the control valve in the end of the cylinder under the nose of the tractor. It is likely worn. If it isn't worn too bad it could be remedied for a while with an adjustment, If it is worn too much then the worn parts would need to be replaced or possibly repaired by building back up with weld and grinding or drilling back to original.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
