what are the symptoms of a power steering pump going bad?
I have a 69 daily driver with 203K on it and the steering moves freely when the car is cool but when it warms up after about 15 mins of driving the steering gets stiff almost like the lash is too tight, which I have loosened, sometimes it feels like the wheels are stuck in a rut and I have to jerk the wheel to get it un-stuck.
Any ideas???

thanks.

If the steering gets tight after its warm? let me think. Mabe the spool valve in the gear box or pump, belt loose , low fluid, fluid on the belt, P.S. lines. A steering joint would do it any time.

The belt is tight, fluid level is good, and hoses are less that two years old. I'll check for slippage.
