Re: [Chrysler300] Power steering control valve 300H





On the advice of John Hertog years ago, I obtained a pump bracket from '59 Chrysler for my F...it is visually identical to the '60 pumps except that it is much more stable- it has 2 places where the pivot lock bolt works instead of 1...guarantees the pump pulley will track correctly at any tension.

John,
I have been reading abut it. Cardione has a great paper about it here.http://my.cardone.com/techdocs/PT%2027-0001.pdf

Thanks, Mike

> Does 300h have that hinge type power steering pump mount like an F ? That is a poor design the pump tilts and belt is not square on pulley .then it slips . If any grease on pulley it can slip without a squeal . I fought that years ago .. Got rid of it with a solid bolt through the hinge and a pipe like spacer . Forget the the details but you can figure out . I remember finding a shoulder bolt bigger than pin and drilling the holes out to get pump to sit square to crank pulley . It bounces around on pin and wears the holes egg shape tilting the pump . Then after fixing that , clamp pump solid like God intended , no hinge action tighten belt . Tighten bolt like an alternator . After changing all the stuff cannot be box or pump .. Why only at idle ? Sounds like belt is not driving pump .. All along . Troubles with the hinged one are common . If not hinged on H all this is irrelevant ! Hope it helps ..

We discussed the steering box which was rebuilt in 2011, but less that 50 miles ago. He suggested I remove the box and he can get it rebuilt again, but we also put a bottle of conditioner in which may clear it up.
