I adjusted the steering valve this weekend on my 60 by loosening the for bolts and slighty tapping the valve. steering works perfectly now but in the process the gasket behind the valve must have torn so now I have a leak. Hoping someone can give me some guidance on the gasket replacement, do I need to remove all of the lines from the valve and pull the valve completly off, when unbolted will there be parts that may fall out, when installing the new gasket should sealer be used on the gasket. any advise/direction appreciated.

I'll add one thing...take a cold chisel and strike the edge of the mating surfaces where the valve body mounts to the worm housing. That will make it easy to align the steering valve when you put it back on and should need no adjustment.

Remove the lines 'cuz it has to be pulled back a considerable distance to free it's fork from the slot in the steering worm.

NOTHING will fall out.

Gasket part number is F2321R.

Don't use sealer, or it will be stuck in place, and not able to be slid/adjusted at a later time, if needed.

In addition I'd order the alum. sealing washers for the lines too.

I took the end cap plug off and noticed some sludgy oil inside can I flush/clean the valve as long as I have it off or would that involve disassembly.

Tough call ? I'd think you won't get it clean without disassembly and could just disturb more grunge.Or maybe it all collected at that one spot ? If it were mine I couldn't leave it alone and would have to tear into it.
