Bad power valve. Could be completly shot, or just maladjusted.
If you're doing a complete restoration, you'll have to spend big bux on
restoring the steering. Lines, hoses, power valves, boxes, etc. Very expensive for
mediocre 50 year old technology.
If it's not a restoration, get a power R&P kit, like Steeroids. Actually less
money, and a much better product. Total Control is also very good, but very expenive.
DO NOT get the flaming river manual steering kit.
