Re: '66 GMC BBW w/351E and Factory Buckets

We had parked this for a bit because of heavy leaks from the power steering valve, hoses, and ram.
We investigated options for both replacing those components and rebuilding them before deciding to go the less expensive route of rebuilding them.
My son chased down rebuild kits for both the valve and ram for just a few bucks...not many parts involved.
We had all new hoses built and then disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt the valve and cylinder.
We reinstalled everything this past weekend and put a few miles cruising around town...perfect steering and NO leaks

BTW - Haven't done anything with the seats...yet.
