Default Power Steering Control Valve Leak

Thank you both, I've checked out Rockauto, but haven't purchased from them yet. I think I want to keep the inserts as is, I'll call Larry's Monday to verify exactly what size the outlet is, push comes to shove, there's a place called Royal Brass in San Jose, near my work where they will make the hose, the only thing is that these hoses seem to be bent and lengthen exactly.

Default Power Steering Control Valve Leak

I Called Larry's yesterday and sure enough, I ordered a 1960 Valve but they gave me one for a 1958/59. They also said they don't have any 1960 on the shelf and asked that I return the one they sent and my old one, they would in turn rebuild my old one and send it back to me. I'm just going to return the wrong item once they send me a pre-paid shipping label. It's fine, I really like this car and enjoy working on it.

Default Power Steering Control Valve Leak

I returned the Control Valve to Larry's for a refund. But I did find a place in San Jose, CA near my work that rebuilds these, it's called Power Steering and Brake Exchange. They rebuilt my valve for $150.00 out the door, I'm going to have them rebuild my brake booster next. One thing, when I installed the valve and put everything together, the wheel went straight to the left? I'm thinking it may be the spring adjustment on the valve?, but I'll check out the forum for answers, Thank You.

I took the cap off to expose the adjusting nut on the power steering control valve, I tightened snug, then backed it off 1/4 turn. I tested without placing the cap back on and everything was fine. I put the cap on and the steering pulled to the right, apparently the re-build was not done right. I put a temp. spacer and it's fine. I still have a small leak but I don't think it's coming from the control valve. I'm thinking of getting one of those UV leak detectors. Next step for me is getting the Brake Booster rebuilt, then its on to the wipers and rear axle bearings.
