Is there a way to put power steering on a 1969 three-quarter ton high boy 4x4?
yes there is a way. You should be able to put the power steering system on from a standard 1969 3/4 ton, it should bolt right up to the existing linkage. Double check with a good four wheel drive shop. yes-buy a power steering gear box-2 power steering hoses & a resivoir & fluid.Ajunk yard (IF they know what there doing) should b able 2 tell U what years fit your applacation.OR go to -www.LMCtruck.com & order U one-They only handle OLDER truck Pars.Thet come in handy 4 my 1971 K30.
Power steering systems can be diagrammed into two chief components. These are the power steering pump and the rack-and-pinion steering gear. The power steering pump sends pressurized fluid into the rack which moves the gear actuating the tie-rods, which moves the wheels in the desired direction. The power steering pump has a low pressure return line and high pressure out one.
Power steering has a pump driven of the engine that pressurizes hydraulic fluid to assist in moving the steering rack. Manual steering doesn't have the pump, so the effect to turn the steering wheel is high, especially at low speeds. Manual steering racks have a higher gear ratio to make it easier but an example is to turn your steering wheel with the engine off. You can get an idea of how much the pump…
yes and no. with the amount of room, i rotated the motor, removed the battery, and partially removed the windshied wiper fluid resoviour. You must disconnect both hoses or the power steering pump will not come out. While you have the power steering pump out, you should replace the high pressure hose.
You have to disconnect the steering sector shaft, the inner tie rod ends, and the take 4 bolts out that connect it to the firewall. Also, if it has power steering the high pressure hose and the return hose has to be disconnected. Anytime after disconnecting a hose to the power steering system the system has to be bled of air or it will ruin the pump
You will probably need to replace power steering hose-I have owned several toronados and generation two bodies with 307 v8 always leak at power steering hose eventually-especially with high miles-replacing hose always worked for me. When this hose leaks it tends to get fluid on belts making them squeel
Brake fluid in the oil won't be much of a problem. It probably won't hurt anything, but to be on the safe side, just change the oil. In the power steering pump it will be harder to get out. You'll have to disconnect the high pressure line and let it pump out, then re-fill it with power steering fluid.
What will happen if after replacing the power steering high pressure hose and don't finish to bleed air out of the line?
Why does the power steering fluid overflow the reservior when engine is running on a 1999 acura 3.2tl?
In the engine compartment,passenger side,up high by the wheel well,by your oil filter,above the side upper motor mount.It is a canister about the size of a 12oz. soda can,it has a cap that when you turn it left and remove it, it has your power steering dipstick attached to it. Fill the canister with your power steering fluid to the "full" level on the dipstick.
For the 2.7 L V6 engine, if you suspect a power steering fluid leak after doing a visual inspection, check the fluid in your PS fluid reservoir which is on the passenger side near the front of the engine bay. If it is low, and you see fluid present, you may have a leak in your PS pump or one of the power steering hoses (high pressure hose leaks are common on high mileage Optimas)…
If you open the hood and stand in front of the engine, the power steering unit is located behind the radiator on to your left. Look at when the belts are and you will see a silver cap about 2" in diameter. Unscrew the cap and there is a dipstick on it indicating how high to fill the reservior. Use Dextron 3 automatic transmission fluid, there is no need to buy special power steering fluid…
We couldn't afford a mechanic and had to change the power steering high pressure hose on our 1996 Mercury Sable. This answer is general but will save you hours of effort and help build your confidence. What most answers to this question don't mention is that the original power steering pressure hose is factory fitted, made of formed metal tubing and also some high pressure hose designed to fit close beside and behind and under…
What would cause car to make a high squeaking noise whenever you have the wheel turned slightly but only at speeds slower then 40mph?
The viscosity of power steering fluid is not relevant to it's job (within reason) but more it's ability to function under extremely harsh and high pressure conditions. All these fluids are merely hydraulic oils as is ATF with Honda fluid containing an additional lubricant additive needed for their speed sensitive steering gears. Use exactly what the manufacture of your vehicle recommends and nothing else.
The BA falcon has a power steering speed sensor switch in the high pressure line next to the power steering pump (Where you top up the fluid) Older switches are grey in colour and newer ones are green, the older one gives lighter steering at low speeds and the newer one gives heavier steering at low speeds, I prefer the lighter feel at parking speeds so I bought that one, both fit, it is a…
