Question about 1966 Ford Mustang
POWER STEERING WORKED GOOD BEFORE I REBUILT THE CONTROL VALVE. THE BALL AND CUPS WERE WORN. NOW IT PULLS RIGHT. I HAVE A REPAIR MANUEL AND EVERYTHING IS PUT BACK RIGHT. THE ONLY QUESTION ON THAT IS THE SPOOL VALVE IS A BIT DIFFERENT IN ONE END AND IT WILL FIT EITHER WAY. I TRIED IT BOTH WAYS AND IT IS HARD TO STEER TO THE RIGHT ONE WAY AND PULLS RIGHT THE OTHER WAY. FOR SOME REASON THE SPOOL IS NOT CENTERING PROPERLY. ANY IDEA'S. I HAVE REBUILT SEVERALVALVES YEARS AGO AND HAD NO PROBLEMS. I TRIED TO ADJUST THE SPRING SEVERAL WAYS AND NO LUCK. I TORQUED THE SPRING TO 100 INCH POUNDS AND BACKED OFF 1/4 TURN. MIKE
I had the same problem w/ my 65 Falcon. I adjusted the control valve a few different ways and it made a little difference. I noticed the boot for the ball stud was off-centered and was pushing the ball stud(along w/ the spool valve) to one side. Try lifting the front of the vehicle, loosen the boot strap, center the boot strap and road test the vehicle. I know it sounds like a long shot but it made a difference. My steering still isn't perfect, but it's alot better. Maybe it will work w/ your concern, it might help me figure out what's wrong w/ mine. Let me know if it helps.
