Hi fellow Mustang enthusiasts,
I own a 65 mustang convertible, 289 V8 automatic. Over the period of last year, I have completely rebuilt and restored the car. The engine has not completely been rebuilt but I've installed Edelbrock aluminum heads, intake manifold and 4v carburetor. In the start-up process, I let the power steering pump turn without oil accidentally, and after adding oil it leaked.
The pump is a long-neck type used for air conditioning system.
I have now removed the pump from the car and want to know how I can determine whether the pump is still in working order (not burned or broken). The reason for concern is that I can turn the wheel easily except it blocks intermittently. By turning is back slightly the block removes and I can turn it again. Does anyone know how I can determine if the pump is till OK?
