steering wheel,end of reconditioned

Postby raziko [OP] » November 12th 2013, 6:53pm

hellow to all.
three components of the steering are reconditioned
box,pump,and hydrobooster! 7,000 shekels (1950 us dollars)
my steering was not working like before (littel hard turning)
i mess with the adjuster nut/helen screw,
i open him 1/4,1/2,1,2,3,4 turns
at the same way i close him 1/4,1/2,1,2,3,4 turns
and it does not gave my a lot (open is a little play,close is without play)

i fill the steering with valvoline max-life atf
please you have any idea???
if i increase the viscosity of oil it can effect on it for good???
or fill the steering with thick oil???
or there is something to adjust apart from the nut/helen screw on the gear box

and how i can see the box model
how i can know that i am not be deceived
(all this story starts when i replace the "box"steering)
please i feel that the mecanic cheated me
thanks to all replay!

I never heard of ATF in the power steering but there's probably a lot I haven't heard off I guess.

Before P/S fluid became popular, it was common practice to use A/T fluid in P/S systems. IIRC, the two are compatable

and either can be used. The seals and hoses are impervious to both fluids. It's basically just a hydraulic system in

either case. If I was in the desert, and developed a slight leak, and had to take a leak, I'd put it in the reservoir til

I got home ! Any port in a storm ???

I don't think that power steering fluid has any friction modifers in it and would ultimately cause the clutches to stick or burn up.

Did you make sure to bleed all the air out of the system? There is a procedure for doing so with the hydroboost system
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.
