Re: 1970 cougar power steering control valve knocks when hot

Flush system & use Type "F" only. No additives or "universal" clear P.S fluid. Valvoline or Walmart brand. Check end adjustment, just in case the ball is loose or mis-adjusted Add a P.S cooler.Theres one that sits on the A/C pump (if you have A/C) that looks original. Also ones that will go in facto...

Re: Thoughts on A/C system

Classic Auto Air has a great kit & has options for R12 & 134A. Looks just like Jeff's & works very well!!

Re: The Vintage Air Incident

Sad to hear. I tire of all the claims these "after market direct fit" junk. My only suggestion on A/C is to install factory stuff & upgrade the compressor, dryer, condenser & expansion valve. Try Classic Auto Air. Flush the rest w/ a aersol flush can avail at Checker/ O's. I've done over a dozens so...

It the valve a repop from "larz"? Repop stuff seems to have a lot of issues.
