Re: case ingersoll 4021ps powersteering drifting right
There are several things that could exist here with pulling to the right. Check air pressure, jack up front wheels off the ground and roll them by hand and see if they rotate with about the same pressure as wheel bearings may need adjustment or replaced. Check all your front end steering components and linkage for loose play. If it has a straight axle the camber/caster may possibly be adjusted which if off can also create this problem. I would check these out in sequence as I have listed them. Good luck!

Either the steering box is bad or you have a colapsed steering presure line,, if you have hit any large pot holes or curbs,,, or in wreck,, i would say steering box,,,, if not,,,, the presure hose or return hose is bad,,,,, or if it rack and pinion steering the whole unit will need replaced
Pretty old car there, Reginald, (that from a guy who drives a '79 Datsun!) You'll have to get under there for a close inspection. Raise the car up on jack stands or blocks. Hopefully, a hose fitting may have loosened where it connects to the rack and pinion gear, and only needs tightening. Or a hose may have ruptured and will need replacing. There are two hoses from the pump to the rack, a supply line and a return line. If you see fluid on one, bend it back and forth to look for a break or leak. The worst case would be a PS fluid seal failure inside the rack and pinion, requiring a new or rebuilt unit. Just paid $240 for a rebuilt unit for a Chrysler last year, to give you an idea. If the fluid drips from where the rack and pinion steering gear is mounted on a crossmember right behind the engine, peel back the rubber boots on both ends of the rack gear (where your tie rods enter the rack and pinion) and check for fluid there. If a lot of fluid, the seals are bad. In that case, consider a used unit, or a rebuilt, or get used to no power steering. Good luck.
bleed power steering with engine off pour power steering fluid in the power steering reservoir until fluid stay at full mark on powersteering pump dip stick.wait few minutes then check powersteering fluid again if low add little more when fluid level stop dropping crank vechicle turn steering left to right with out a stop turn steering wheel all the way to the left to all way to right for minute until air bubbles leave the powersteering fluid. when steering wheel feel normal stop engine check check power steering fluid should be at full hot mark if fluid level dont drop air is out the system. dont overfill powersteering reservoir if so you will blow front seal.dont drive vechicle if steering dont feel normal have vechicle towed in garage.
Does it have disc or drum brakes? If it has disc see if the rotor has turned blue from heat most likely stuck caliper. If it has drum brakes remove drum look for pieces springs adjuster e.t.c. if everything intact turn axle see if you hear noise usually a bad or locked up hub bearing will make loud humming noise.
that tool is under warrenty whoever u bought it from should have it fixed. did u try to adjust the air flow on your forard and reverse by turning the nob right or left has numbers on it hold the trigger turn the nob i see what it does i rebuilt many a 261
You have a failed steering rack, this problem is caused by a defective seal inside the steering rack, you need to replace it, make sure you flush the PS system, as it will most likely be full of debris from the failed rack unit.
sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack
