Reducing the power effect from a Ford p/s system

At highway speeds the steering seems too easy in my 65 country squire,its not too bad at speeds below 50. I really like non p/s at highway speeds but those big boats need help at slow speeds and parking,is there anything I can do to the pump or box to get it to fell like a manual box at highway speeds and some power at low speeds. My 92 F150 does not fell like my 65 but the pump is really noisey and I like the quite of the pump on my 65 so is there anything i can do or is it just the way there are. Jeff

Check and see if different relief valve springs are available.On a GM the spring in the releif valve is what they changed to get the steering feel they wanted for diffrent models, I.E Caddy's had astiffer spring offering more pressure and assist than those on a Camaro using the same pump.A spring from a pump on a lighter car with the same pump should do the trick such as Stang or Falcon.It is located in the pump behind the high pressure line fitting.

I will look into the spring since the pump that is on it came from a F350 which probably has higher pressure,I will replace the spring with the one from the original pump and go from there. Jeff
