    Yes I have a sag power steering conversion,and was wondering when I had the lines made and then hooked it all up now when I start it It just turns hard left on Its own,and will not return so now its disconnected so I can turn it I checked the valves at the gear box and the pump they move free the only thing I can think is are they backwards?But the valve should be on the pressure side right that how it is on my TA and my old chev truck So I dont know ???

    might be reversed lines...the larger nut/fitting on the box is the pressure side, the smaller nut/fitting is the return side...

    option B is a junked spool valve in the box itself, which means rebuilding/replacing....

    hope for option A :G
