Re: Power steering freaks out
70 chevelle ss 396 with saginaw power steering gear box. I have two different power steering pumps and have tried them both. when the engine runs the steering wheel turns violently to the left and locks there, it will even kill the engine. I rebuilt the gearbox pretty successfully i think and cleaned all fluid from the pump. tried filling it again and running it. Same result. Improperly adding fluid/bleeding or something else?
Any advice is appreciated, thanks
Therein lies your problem LOL. I have had steering boxes act in a similar manner many years ago. Replacing them solved the problem.
