    I finally got the 70 up in the air and it was pretty easy to see what was wrong with the steering.

    The power steering control valve -- the ball joint is broken -- the pivot point that connects to the control arm.

    Can a person find a rebuilt one? can you buy one?

    It has original steering controls.

    Thoughts?

    That ball moves back and forth with out pressure on it .it should be checked with it running. It is re buildable if it is bad .
