Hi Guys,
I have 2 problems i need advice on.
1/ I replaced the 2 old and ready to burst power steering control valve hoses which were not leaking a drop of oil, and now that i have 2 new hoses the lower hose at the control valve leaks oil.
I made up a special pipe spanner to get a good grip on the pipes so they are tight and i have had them on and off several times.
I believe the pipe seats will need replacing.
2/ The ball stud has a lot of movement so i might as well rebuild the whole assembly.
Does anybody now where i can purchase a complete overhaul kit which includes all neccesary parts including the pipes seats here in Aust.
I have searched the net and can only find Stangersite in the States that does a very comprehensive kit.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Rob.

Not sure about the pipe seats, but I got my steering valve rebuild kit from ebay.

The seats in the valve are hard to find. I found no one here who carried them (many steering shops had no clue what I was asking about)

Chockostang sells the most comprehensive selection of parts I have found. I was looking at buying some stuff including the seats from him soon, so if you want a combined shipping I'm happy to work something out.

Risky, as you have indicated, most of the leaks from the control valve occur due to the hose not seating properly. You need to make the hose fitting fit the control valve fitting. Or if you use a brand new control valve with older hoses, same deal. I've sealed up many by simply tightening then loosening then tightening up to 6 times. I don't use a tube spanner when doing this as they tend to slip when driven hard. I use a good quality 1/2" open ender that has a wide footprint. Be patient. I can't remember one that wouldn't seal up and i've done a few over the years.

That fixed my control valve leak Like

Is it the same deal with the p/steer pump hoses? Mine's weeping from the pump.

Moe, where is the actual leak, at the hose fittings or the front of the pump?

I get control valves (or any steering parts) restored (& done correctly) by BossKraft. Never had a leak or issue & I have had many done since my return to Australia.

Some cheaper brands of hoses are badly made & require what Nuts has described to seal. I do not use them.

Think it is at the back of the pump and runs down the line. Will get a photo.

Check to see if the front of the pump is wet. If the pressure pipe is tight, the return hose clamp is tight and the rear nut is tight, it can only leak from the pump seal or the O ring in the canister. My guess is that the seal is hard from sitting for 20 years.

Or someone has jammed a screwdriver or pry bar between the pump housing & bracket to tension the belt. That pulls the housing it out of shape & the O ring is useless.

front of the pump is dry. seems to be leaking from the top p/steering hose fitting. As in the thread on the p/steering hose is dry, but the thread on the nut is wet.
