Bleeding Saginaw system

I have a Saginaw box on a pickup. I have a remote reservoir and a type 3 pump (serpentine). I have made all "a/n" hoses, adapted the a/n fittings to the steering box. I am bleeding the system (rack to rack 40 times) and I keep getting small bubbles when going through the "straight ahead" position. I have probably been rack to rack 400 times since I started to try to rectify this. I have absolutely no leaks. I did find one small leak on the return line to the pump, tightened the fitting and I have not run the engine since, I have just been doing the rack to rack thing. Are these small bubbles normal? We have been turning the wheel fairly fast.

Don't worry about it. If you don't hear heavy groaning or have chattering there should be no problem.
Some small bubbles in a new system are normal, especially if you don't turn the wheel slowly. After a few days the air will come out of the system by itself.


Later, mikey

Thanks for the advice. Tried the rack to rack thing turning the wheel slowly. Bubbles finally disappeared. The next thing I will try is firing it up. Last time I did that I had foam, foam, foam. p.s. I am using Redline synthetic p/s oil. Thanks again.
