i am assuming yours is put together and ready to install?

you will have to turn it end to end and count the turns, after doing this split that number in half and you will now have your center position now for the fun part there should be a wide spot on the spline of the gearbox make sure it is lined up properly and the steering wheel is not upside down. i had a 64 and did that

Is it advisable to install a power steering unit on a 1957 ford thunderbird?

The 1957 Ford Thunderbird came from the factory with power steering. If the unit is not functioning properly it may be unsafe to drive it. So, yes, the system should be fixed if not propelry working. If you located a 1957 Thunderbird that did not have power steering factory installed, there is no benefit to doing the extensive work to fit the equipment, and it will lower the value of this rare car you found.

Well, have you actually done any sort of diagnosis? If there's no fluid leak visible, and there's fluid in the reservoir, then you have either a faulty power steering pump or gearbox. So then you disconnect the line from the pump to the gearbox and run a pressure test on it.. if that checks out, then it's probably your gearbox.

How does an power steering works?

Power steering is used to help the driver turn the wheel. Power steering is powered by a fluid held within the reservoir, where you put the power steering fluid into. Then, the power steering pump takes over. That pumps the steering fluid to the steering gearbox, which flows to the valve body unit (kind of like a crank). Once you turn the wheel to the left or to the right, the computer tells the steering fluid to push against the crank to make the wheels move, taking less stress off the driver. You usually find power steering in bigger vehicles, such as pick up trucks, big rigs, bigger cars, etc. You won't find it in smaller cars because it's already easy to turn.
