Hi,

My 65 has power steering. The wheels are much easier to turn to the right than they are to the left (if memory serves me right that's the way it is).

Anyway... I've adjusted the nut on the power steering control valve (I guess that's what it's called. It's the nut that you remove 2 screws from an end cap and there is a nut in there) to the point there are just enough threads holding it on. If I adjust it the other way, the condition gets worse.

The car has a good professional alignment.

What is worn out/out of adjustment causing this situation?

Thanks,
John Thomas

Hmmm. For some reason, the spool inside the control valve is not centering.
Did the car just suddenly start doing this? If so, I would guess that the travel stop has pulled out of the end of the ball stud bushing or maybe has unscrewed itself a bit. Could be the bushing is binding in one end of the centerlink.
If the valve has just been worked on or rebuilt, something is not assembled correctly.
