Thanks for all the videos! Do you have one for the steering cylinder? I see the one for the control valve.

Rebuilding a power steering cylinder in most cases is a waste of time. If you look at the shaft on your old one you'll more than likely see a worn groove in the chrome on the shaft. What happens is this: You replace the seal by removing the retaining ring but once you install the new seal the groove in the chrome causes the seal to fail. In most cases it will last about a month or so and then start leaking again.

It's sad because the only choice is to purchase a new cylinder that is imported (they do have a good success rate though) or to purchase a rebuilt unit that has had the shaft replaced in it (more expensive than the imported cylinder).
