Saginaw problems

Last week on the 45 run my power steering develpoed some odd charateristics. First, the steering got noticably harder than usual. Then when trying to research the prob, with the wheel turned full left, rev the motor and the wheel spins full lock to the right on it's own! Any ideas? 70 FJ40 2f with Saginaw 4.25 power steering

Contact Matt Hodges at West Texas Off Road, you, your rig and your wallet will be happier than with the bling from AGR. you can tell him Butch sent ya' but Matt is the kind of guy that treats everyone fair.......hell Matt has DIY instructions on his website on how to boost the pump, and a number of guys on here have either done them or felt my steering after his mods

Thanks Butch! I just printed this thread to put in my well-organized Cruiser paper pile, er, I mean file.

I appreciate the info.

Sounds like your spool valve is stuck open to the left. You need to take the box apart and rebuild it. It could be a seal that let loose and now something sort of debris is making the spool valve stick. Rebuilding these boxes is not difficult. The seal kit costs about $50 from Matt at WTOR. The cheapest solution is to find another box and junk this one. Let me know if you go that route and I will see if I can rebuil this box.

AGR???? Hahahahahahahahahahahaha Good luck with that!

Thanks for the replies. Does anyone have a link to a site with info on rebuilding a Saginaw box? I checked out Redneck Ram's but it didn't show enough.
