After asking around on the forum, it has come to my attention that I probably have air in my power steering fluid. How do I bleed the power steering system? I helped my dad bleed the brakes on his '67 Spitfire, but he is not sure how to do this.


On a side note, anyone make roll cages for Cougars?

This may not be the best way but it is how I did it. Pulled return hose at the cylinder let fluid drain into can as wheel was turnrd lock to lock 3-4 times. Reconnected and refilled system.

Logan, do you take the dipstick off and turn the steering wheel when the car is running or not to bleed any air out? Thank


Steve
