1965 mustang p/s vibration

Hello. i have a problem with the p/s on this old mustang. it seems the p/s control valve that controls the hydraulic ram was replaced because it was leaking fluid. now the steering wheel kind of vibrates when turning either way with the car at a stop. the control valve was replaced again but the problem is still there. anyone know how i would go about diagnosing something like this? thank you

    Replacing the pump took care of the problem for me I had also went through one control valve before changing the pump.

What causes my 1965 4 speed mustang to backfire and sometimes stall?

backfiring is ignition of the fuel mixture while an inlet valve is still open. Check firing order as there may be a HT lead crossed . If it backfires then the mixture is burnt in the inlet manifold so there is nothing left for the cylinders so it will stall. If you are running holley carby then check the power valve for a hole in the diaphram Check for vacuum leaks. check ignition timing is correct and not too far advanced. if the HT leads are touching each other this will induce a spark in the wrong cylinder --use lead spacers from an auto spares shop

'65' mustang p/s control valve

i would advise against any attempt to take it apart. the best way is to replace it as one piece with the draglink attatched to the new part. there are a couple of companies on the web that sell the control valves. they usually require the old part back because they are rare to find.
