Could you provide some more info and some pictures. I have an issue on my 2001 exec that turning is almost impossible when not rolling. Even just taking my foot off the break seems to release the wheel to turn.

The pump is located on the passenger side of the engine. Facing rear of engine itís about 5 oíclock. You wonít see from the front of engine because it runs off the back side of the front cover. Easy to see from underneath. I would start by plumbing in a pressure gauge inline where PS line hooks to pump. Itís the small line 7/8 wrench. I bought the fittings and gauge from a hydraulic shop for about 50 bucks. When engine running, not turning wheel, it should be around 200 psi +/- when turning wheel should go up to 2000 psi +/- Thatís what I would check first

My pump was only putting out 800 psi while trying to turn the wheel. No where near enough. The priority valve was fairly easy to remove. Remove the tamper wire. I believe it is an 1 1/4 socket to remove. It comes out as a cartridge. Remove it spray it off real good with parts clean or wd40. Blow it out with air then reinstall. You will lose fluid. May want to try vacuum trick mentioned above. The pressure check valve on the other had was a bit of a pain. There isn’t enough room to remove it as is. It hits the engine block. I had to loosen the line going to the fans, 1 1/4, and remove the two 5/8 bolts that secure pump to adapter plate. Once you do this you can rotate the pump counter clock wise just enough to remove it. I would suggest getting it loose enough to still rotate pump and remove the rest of the way by hand. Won’t be able to use a wrench once you rotate pump. You will lose fluid doing this also. It’s very tight area to work it but it’s definitely doable.

power steering

Hi guys, after reading this post, I realized that I can't turn my steering wheel without front or rear movement. My power steering unit is not same as in this previous post, It is a fahrzeug LH 2112274. I believe it is original equipment. the only access to the inside of the pump is behind an 1 1/4 nut. I can replace this pump for $185 from northwest. Anyone have this issue on their 60 series.
Thanks, Jake
