Idle too Lean and or idle too low. The pump loads under extreme turning. If the idle is too lean/ low, the power loss under extreme turing
could stall the engine.
good luck

If you are turning hard against the stops, don't go that far, it dosen't help to hold the wheel all the way like that anyway.

If you are stalling while just turning the wheel short of full lock, try more ignition advance at idle.

Jeff - does this happen at low speed, high speed or all the time?

Fuel slosh in the bowls could be causing the problem make sure you have a baffle in the primary bowl. The other thought is your PS pump may be going bad and tightening up when called on to work it's hardest.

DJD it does it with just the engine idleing with the clutch pushed in still rolling like when im turning into the drive way on a hard turn.if i give it a little gas it wont do it.thanks jeff

Probable too lean at idle.

Are you using a vacuum advance? That might help.
