Classic Mustang Technical forum / 1965 brake problems
« Last post by Becky35 on October 07, 2014, 11:23:50 PM »
I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with my car, but I'm guessing it's the brakes. I have a 1965 coupe with power brakes. The other day I was driving home, when I heard a loud pop noise. Then as I put my foot on the brake, it made a weird clinky noise. When trying to park it back into my garage, the car would jerk Everytime I attempted to brake.
This morning I went to move it out of the garage, and I noticed the brakes stopped jerking, but now it makes a noise much like the noise a car makes when the power steering fluid is low, except more muffled.

Anyone have any ideas what is wrong ?n

special note : Intelligence has to do with the soul, not simply with the brain.

Take electricity, for example. Electricity moves between gross elements and through a gross wire. But the electricity itself -- it is not those elements, not that wire. It is subtle.

Manuals of any vehicle is important for the user who using car first time. All the user have no more information about the vehicle maintenance and their features. So, Manuals is best for all the users. When ever my parents purchase vehicle and other tools, I have found that  manuals is must required to manage that tool.

Thanks for providing this..  :)

Ford Motor Company stamped the serial number at three places. One is seen looking down into the engine compartment. You’ll only be able to view the two others when the body is removed from the frame. When you locate the Ford serial number on the frame in the engine compartment.

Yes I did bleed the system as you described. And I have been in touch with Chock. However, even he did not know the "NORMAL" psi readings that I should have at idle. He did mention that the 1050 psi reading with the test valve shut off was about normal.

What I need at this point is what is the at idle psi reading with the test valve open (no turning of the steering wheel)??? Does any one know that psi figure???

After installing did you bleed the system?  You need to turn the steering wheel to the left lock, then to the right lock, then left, .... quite a few times to get all the air out of the system.  Do this 3 times, stop the engine and check the power steering fluid.  Repeat as necessary.

If that does not work there's a fellow on the VMF forum who goes by the user name Chock that can probably help you.  He's away right now but will be back on the board in a week or two.  I'd definitely refer you to him.  He rebuilds and sells these systems and is very knowledgable.

Classic Mustang Technical forum / No assist from power steering

I am working on a 65 2+2 289 auto trans. The owner had another tech install power steering on the car (it did not have PS originally). Everything appears to be new and correct as far as I can tell. However, the car steers like a car without PS. Fluid is full--belt is tight--valve is centered (it does not pull left or right) and all hoses are new and are hooked up correctly.

I hooked up a PS test gauge with shut off valve.

At idle and test valve open the reading was 300psi

At idle with the test valve closed the reading was 1050psi and the pump was starting to make noise

At idle while turning the steering wheel back and forward about one half turn the reading was still 300psi


I checked the piston by disconnecting the hoses and draining the fluid--then I pushed the piston rod in and out while holding my finger over one of the holes for the hoses and I could feel suction and pressure. I also gave the piston a shot of compressed air and the the rod moved out and I did not see any air coming from the other hose hole.

I also removed the control valve and disassembled it--it looked fine inside. All the parts were installed correctly and everything moved as it should.

Still NO ASSIST---the only thing that I don't know is what is a normal PSI  reading for this pump. Is 300psi at idle a normal psi reading??? Or do I need to replace the new pump.
