P/S control valve on a '68

Hello All,

I am sorry to keep bothering you with these stupid questions, but I thought I was going nuts. I purchased a remanufactured bendex valve. Per pictures you all offered my P/S lines look correct. In the tech pictures it shows the return line (larger diameter) on top of the valve with the Pressure line (smaller diameter) on the bottom.  In this assembly my lines would work.  But the control valve I have installed has the pressure line on top with the return line on the bottom.  

Result is the pressure line hits the frame on a hard right turn.

Has anyone of you experienced or heard of this?

How do attach pictures?

I have called Cardone Ind. the re-mfg. but they could not help.

Thanks all for your help.

Perhaps it would be better to update the original thread instead of starting another one ?

Maybe a mod can merge them ?

post the part
number of the valve you bought so I can look it up

Thanks so much for your assistance.  I have got the lines to work.  I gave up on the one piece pressure line, and went to a 2-section pressure line.  Result was the bends in the hard line worked and lines now miss the frame above, with plenty of clearance from the exhaust by the P/S pump.

Regards,

John

I know you will know this right off the top of your head.

Problem:
I fail to take a picture of the dash arrangement.
Question:
After repainting the dials on the gauges, I did not put them back on the bench where I got them.  Hence, now I can not remember what side the oil pressure and temperature gauge go on:-))

It is just the old man that I have become.

Thanks, John Grin

Hey williaj6 - Some of us use a web site called Photobucket (http://photobucket.com/) to post our photos in preparation for inserting them in our replies on this forum. The Photobucket web site is like any others where you can post photos and they are available for everyone to look at. Generally you have to sign up at no cost in order to post photos and there is a content agreement you must agree to. On the Photobucket web site you sign in, upload a photo from your computer, then you can copy and past it onto the form page where you type your message. At Photobucket you click (left or right depending on your mouse) on the "IMG" (image) code file name (IMG//http://...etc) for the photo you want to copy over and click copy then just past it in into your comment here. It took me a little bit of frustration to figure it out but it is not too difficult. This sure helps others figure out what your trying to explain. Good luck!

Dear Milton,

I had to chuckle at myself when I got done painting the dials and set them all in a group.  Then reviewing the wiring...the harness' were the same. I guess I could have traced the sending units.

Thanks,


John

Hello Milton,

Okay I have another dilema.  I have all the new P/S installed.  I noticed that the control valve will hit the tie rod sleeve when the weight of the car is lowered.  Is there an ajustment I can do with regards to the pitman arm or idler arm placement to offer more clearance?

The new spindles are from Stainless Steel Brakes, all tie rods are new, the tie rod sleeves are from Edelbrock (cool alum. one-piece).

NEXT QUESTION:

I noticed a small anti-freeze drip coming from between the rear of the motor and bell housing-i.e. flywheel.  I suspect I have a freeze plug rusting.  

If I remove the C-4 auto transmission and fly wheel...is it possible to replace the freeze plug with the motor in the car?  Do I have enough clearance to hammer a replacement plug?

Kind Regards,

John Williams
