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).

Do you have a torque value for the two bolts that hold the power steering control valve together? All he said in the video was to put it in a vice and get them tight. I found another set of instructions on the web and they said to torque them to 60 ftlbs! My bolts are only grade 5 and the torque value they give is almost double what a 3/8 grade 8 bolt should be. Mine were on tight but I don't think they were that tight! According to several tables I found, the torque value for a 3/8 grade 5 should be about 23 ftlbs. Thoughts?

I do.. but I've been under the weather a bit... I'll be in tomorrow and ask Kevin what the torque is.

60 ft lbs I called Kevin.... and thanks.. I'll make a note on the video to reflect this Scott.

Note: Added it just now.
