Power steering box "diagram"?

I want to see if my junkyard power steering is OK by looking at what I got and comparing that to some sort of exploded diagram or explanation which describes the guts of the steering box, particularly the servo valve part that senses the torque from the steering wheel. Anybody know if these CD manuals have that information? I don't want to get one and read "this part must be sent out to be re-built by a GM sanctified parts supplier".

http://www.gregsonline.com/eshop/CDs...c/56-CADMC.htm

Above; a link to a service manual on CD.

If you are smart about power steering boxes, reply with link to site that can get me smart as well....or book, or ancient Egyptian hieroglyph... what ever!

Every paper factory service manual I have (covering Chevy, Cadillac, and Oldsmobile) from the 1950s through the 1990s has info on rebuilding the steering box. I've had problems with CD manuals in that the person who put them together didn't feel it was necessary to copy every page. Spend the money and get a real (paper) one.

Saginaw In-line Stg Gear Information

This some info I had in my data base that should help you on the steering gear. I assume by your post that you are working on a 56 Caddy which uses the Saginaw In-line. I hope the pdf files work as I am new to this forum. If they do not I can email them to you.

Thanks

Yoe Dale! Thanks for the PDF stuff, it is great! I have nothing that has a clue except your pdfs.... Do you have Figure 69 and Figure 74? The text of the pdf files you attached references those figures but they are not included in the pdf files.

I'll need a few days to get my gray matter around those pdfs....I need to work out the brain cramp I got trying to understand all the info! Thanks a ton!

Caddy Stg Box

The old book I use omits pictures a lot I think they used the OEM literature and left out a few illustrations that they felt were not useful to save room in the book. There should be enough info to get you in trouble and then back out of it. I have only rebuilt one of those years ago but it was pretty straight forward.
