    1020 Power Steering

    I recently purchased an early 1020--1966 I think. It's equipped with power steering, but it doesn't work-it steers, but it's obviously not power assisted. There doesn't appear to be any leaks. I'm wondering if there is any relatively simple test to determine where the problem is--the steering valve, the ps pump, a clogged filter? It's an early 1020 with the open center type of ps. All lines appear to be connected and there's fluid in the system and the hydraulic system works. A person on another forum suggested the hydraulic oil filter relief valve is stuck open. I took the hyd filter off but I can't remove the relief valve to check it. The hyd filter looked fine--no shavings & no obvious dirt. There was also no intake screen in place. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Hydraulic relief valve removal

    Does anyone know how to remove the hydraulic relief valve--located above the hydraulic filter--on a 1020? It's firmly in place and no place to apparently get a grip on it & move it. Thanks.

    My 1020 was the opposite, could steer her with 1 finger. Maybe this will assist you, here's the service manual page for the power steering system, and hydraulic system. I have the rest of the sections too if you're interested.

    If you remove the hydraulic filter and look up in the housing where it comes out, you can see the filter relief valve. usually can pry on it with a screwdriver from there to help remove it. Have also used flat external snap ring pliers to grab it from the plug hole to help twist and pull it out.
