Steering Gearbox Installation

The steering gearbox arrived last night about 6:30 PM and I had it in and working by 9:00. It started working right away. I Bleed exactly how Chip recommends.

His suggestion is to have the vehicle on the ground. Fill up power steering pump reservoir and start engine. Turn it right off and top up reservoir. Do this 3-4 times till reservoir stays full, with out turning wheels. You do not want air to trapped.

Then start engine, slowly turn wheel left and then right. If you hear any whine, fill up reservoir.

The air bleed out right away and started working as soon as the wheels started turning.

Glad to get this done…now on to better things!
