my friends, I am installing for the 1st time ps into my convertible(it is the only way to get the mrs to allow me to pump $$ into the stang-so she can drive it).

I have all the hardware assembled, but do not know about the two short hoses. Does the lower hole in the control valve hose hook to the lower hole in the ps cylinder, and the top hole on the control valve to the top hole on the ps cylinder?

Thanks!

Happily seeing some progress,
Ralph

That's the way it's hooked up on mine. Good Luck.

A word to the wise for the first time you start up the car and try the newly installed power steering. Keep your hands clear of the steering wheel when you start the car up and test it at first by lightly turning it from the outside or the wheel.

I redid mine earlier this year and even though I took notes, drew pictures, etc, I still managed to hook up the two short hoses backwards (duh).

The car started fine and everything looked good until I tried to turn the wheel. It went NUTS and banged itself back and forth with enough force to have easily broken my arm had it been in the way. Had to kill the engine to stop it.

Scared the crap out of me to say the least

Be careful,

Troy and I have a shared experience. Scared the heck out of me too! Good piece of advice there.

The front was up in the air when I first started it. Man the wheels started going crazy, went through the normal cussing myself to death, then realized what had happened. Easily could have broken my arm. How do you guys get the lines tight enough, I'm using a line wrench and they still leak a little?

Thanks
Marshall

Once I save up the money I think I'm gonna go ahead a get a manual rack. Hopefully the price of the kit from TCP comes down.

I replaced everything short of the ps pump when I redid mine. No leaks yet (knock on wood). I never had any leaks before either (until the control valve went into meltdown).

No, don't use teflon tape. The hose seals at the tubing flare.

Good advice Steve,
The flare makes the seal not the teflon. If it still leaks take the line off and look at the flare on the line and the unit. Look for scratches or defects, I have used some emory cloth to smooth out some of these and fix the leak.
