    This happened today. First time in a while. When I turn the wheel all the way to lock when at at stand still, like in a parking lot, the engine either bogs down and I let off the wheel or it dies. Is it the ps pump straining the engine? 91 sub 350 tbi.

    Don't hold the wheel against the stop! :D Seriously, it causes the pump to work very hard, as the steering tries to rip the stops off the axles. Line pressure jumps up well over 1,200 PSI and then the internal pressure bypass valve opens to prevent blowing the hose apart. Back off the steering wheel a couple of inches and all should be well. :cool1:

    yeah never keep steering fully turned against stops, very bad thing, less you want to have to replace line or pump

    if you think that it dosnt turn far enough before hitting stops then pull the welder and cutter out and modify/relocate them a little but dont get carried away, a little movement at stop is alot at outers of tires,



    good luck

    A man went to his doctor screaming "Doctor, Doctor I just broke my arm in 3 places"

    Doctor said "stay out of those places"
