Re: Power steering 67 camaro
I had a problem with my power steering pump, too. During the restoration it worked fine, but I decided that while it was off the car I'd have it completely rebuilt. I took it to a local company, D&S, and they rebuilt and painted it for me for $45.
I installed the pump on the car with both front wheels up, put the fluid in the pump, turned both wheels to the right while the motor was running, and then shut the engine off. I checked the fluid level and added some. Five minutes later I restarted the car, turned the wheels to the left, and shut the engine down. Then I let it sit for about 20 minutes to get the air bubbles out. I repeated this two or three times, and then let the car sit for about 3 hours to let the bubbles out. I checked the fluid level and added enough not to exceed the limit.
The power steering worked fine, but 2 weeks later the power steering went out it my driveway. There was no fluid leak--just the steering went hard. I took the pump back off, thinking it was the valve, but it wasn't stuck. I took it back to D&S and they told me that the pump inside the power steering went out, not the valve. Just like everything else with this car, I have to do everything two or three times. It sounds to me like one or two things--check the valve to see if it's stuck and if not, the pump inside went out. Have it rebuilt or buy a new one at Auto Zone. Hope this helps. Casey
