Need Help Quick. P.S. dont work.

I just recently bought a 1973 chevy stepside. Its got a 350(with the goodies), a 4in. lift and 33x12.5 tires. My power streering started to come and go so i replaced the belt and P.S. pump. but still the same problem. I can barely turn the whell under 10mph and not at all at a stop. The steering does loosen up with higher rpm though so i have to rev it up to get it to turn. Idles set right. Don know what the prob is. Any help is greatly appreciated since i have to drive this every day. For know i'm stranded.

Either another bad pump (is it making any noises?) or there is a blockage in the hoses.....

Change the fluid, and make sure the hoses aren't obstructed.

73chevroletnova,

I think the steering box is shot. As they get old the sealing rings leak between each side which causes the "hard" steering when not moving or slow speed, but gets to doing better when you rev the engine up.

Good Luck
