Probably a bad ps steering box. One thing you could try is to disconnect the low pressure return hose (fill pump resevoir first!) and hold it over a bucket while a friend starts the engine. Fluid should flow freely and rapidly into the bucket. If it doesn't you've got gunk/crud/in or just plain old worn out steering box. This is a recirculating ball type system and is subject to wearing out.

1964 1/2 Mustang, V8 - Equipped with eaton power steering pump with a reservoir. I can not keep it from leaking through the cap. It has a new gasket. There appears to be a lot of pressure in side. Do you...

check and see if any of your lines are pinched or crimped. it could also be a small leak that could be sucking in air. if there is like a foam raising to the top of the reservoir then there is alot of air in the system

Windshield wiper fluid does not squirt out

go to a service station with an air compressor and with the air turned down to about 20 lbs blow into the washer top small hole to force fluid thru the hoses,not a lot of pressure so you blow hoses off or rupture something

1964 1/2 mustang beinig rebuilt. A new 302 engine

That's because the 302 and the 260 don't share the same accessory bolt patterns. If it's a dealer installed AC the mounting may be "custom". If you still have the original engine, transfer the bolt hole positions, drill and tap. Good luck. Measure twice!

Convertible top motor runs for a few seconds and quits. top goes uo about 6 inches but settles back when motor quits. how can i check to see if motor is still good or if needs replacing?

the motor just pumps hydraulic fluid into the lift pistons. If you are low on fluid, the motor can't create enough pressure to run the pistons. Check the fluid level.

Windsheild Wiper Fluid will not squirt on windshield

While you were filling the tank you may have disconnected the pump wires. If you can hear the pump activating when you use the switch then the pump may have gotten clogged , check for sediment in the tank.  For the person with the mustang - if its only coming out of one side then its a nozzle clogged or a pinched hose.

We have a fully rebuilt 351 winsor, and we've can only get 20-25 pounds oil presure? we've tried another new oil pump, and it's the same.

You should be getting 35-40 Psi @2000 rpm. It could be incorrect bearing clearances.
Very small changes in main bearing clearance make for large changes in oil pressure.
