Question about 1966 Ford Mustang
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...
