Replaced Control Valve
#1
Replaced the power steering control valve on my 70 Mach this morning. Old one was leaking like a sieve. It'll be a week or two before I run the engine, so I won't know if the rebuilt one is going to be good or not.

(I've done this job on other old 'Stangs in the past, and the hoses seem to always be a PITA due to different sizes of control valves and ram lengths that one encounters. It would be great to have a selection of hoses lengths handy.)

You are correct Sir a definite pain in the AZZZZ! You would think Ford could have done a little better, on the engineering of the steering mechanism on the late sixties cars. JTS71 Mach1
