Mustang II rack and pinion to GM pump install

I have installed a mustang II power rack and pinion and a GM pump. I just tried bleeding the system and in countered alot of jumping of the wheel and tires as I turned the steering back and forth. I have changed the pump pressure with a Borgeson kit (4 shims) should be about 1000 PSI. Ideas?

Did you put the valve in to reduce pressure from the Gm pump. If you have a Mustang rack you have to use one. If you use a T-Bird rack and a gen II pump, you do not need one.

You can find them in speedway.

I assume I have a mustang II rack and pinion and I've been told then TB and mustang are the same ( assume and here say not so good). I did alter the valve with a shim kit. Since my first post I checked the fluid level and noticed lot of bubbles in the fluid, so I did the bleeding again. My new Question is does the jumping indicate air in the system?

There's a good chance, you might have air getting into system.

The TB- racks from the, I think mid 80's to early 90's will work without the valve, and using what they call the GM GEN II pump. Speedway as every thing you need for them.

Before you do anything I would check and see if you have the hoses swapped on the rack!

Hoses are right ( pressure to the front return to the rear) I think that everything is OK, I ran it again last night and all was well. It seems that letting it sit between bleeding sessions does slot of good, no more bubbles in the fluid--- Thanks to all for the help
