I have a 1976 ford f250 ranger automatic 460, the power steering went out, but now i'm having bigger issues. The steering wheel is very stiff and while driving when I turn the whole colum lifts up, and the truck will shift into netrual, and when I straight the steering wheel is very stiff, not only because of the lack of power steering, but now its getting worse. The steering wheel is now upside down (to go straight) while in reverse if I move the steering wheel slightly to the right if shifts into netrual, if I move it to the left it shifts back into reverse. While driving when I make a right turn the steering wheel locks up and shifts back into netural. The whole steering colum looks like it has been raised up inside of the cab, flush with the bottom of the dash board. Under the hood, looking at the steering, I can see that there is some metal that looks disconnected and mangled. What is the possibillities of the repairs?
