1962 Ford Fairlane V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 132000 miles
We just replaced the power steering cylinder and power steering valve. We were told to to twist the wheel one way and then the other way to work the fluid thru and steering would resume to normal. Two problems are 1) when starting the car the steering wheel shakes rapidly back and forth and 2) the new oil in the power steering pump is now extremely hot and smoking. Do we look at replacing the pump or could we have received a bad cylinder or valve. HELP!
