1966 Mustang power steering problem

I have totally restored this car doing most of the work myself. I installed all new steering parts except I had to use rebuilt parts for the PS control valve and the hydrolic cylinder. I have traced the problem to extreme looseness in the valve ball stud. It seems the rebuilder did not rebuild this stud. I have a rebuild kit for this stud, but I don't know the procedure. Does the entire cylinder and control valve need to be removed from the car or can I replace with the kit parts right on the car? I am age 69 and don't have the confidence that I use to. Any advice?

Try tightening your spool bolt. Take off the spring cap, tighten the adjusting nut till it is snug, then back it off no more than a 1/4 turn. Hopefully this will help. If you need a diagram, let me know. I have a shop manual that shows all..

Sorry but the way to do it is unscrew it from the control arm, its a lot easier than you think. Remove the hoses, loosen the control valve clamp after decopling the pitman . measure the threads or distance to a referance point on the arm to the valve body somewhererso its located properly when you reasemble. I would go ahead and get all your parts to rebuild the whole valve while youre at it. Should last a good long time...

I am down to putting steering wheel and instruments in a 67 mustang after a 10 year long project. I have parts, I think, but can't figure out how the steering wheel, horn ring and all the misc parts go...

Are you installing the original steering wheel or a replacement? Screw holes shouldn't be off at all if all original parts are installed. Sounds like a replacement part may be for another model year. Double check all the steering/horn/turn signal switch plates to make sure they're the correct part numbers. Only 10 years, huh? I'm in year 3 and still haven't gotten to the floor pans! Maybe another 8 - 10 years and I'll have it on the road.

1966 mustang steering problem.

According to the service manual, your turn the steering wheel full left to full right a few times. As it's effectively a circulating system, the air will pump its way back into the resevior.

'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.
