OK, being the eternal tightwad I decided to put a set of seals into my 318 steering control valve rather than pay $400 plus parts to have it done. My question, I have two springs in the sector next to the bottom that popped out before I could see where they went. I have an exploded diagram from the dealer but my two springs don't seem to belong. Help!

I have chosen to replace the seals in my steering control valve myself rather than pay $400 at the dealership. I may have run into one snag. As I took the bottom section off I had two springs relocate before I could see where they went. They are about a quarter inch across and maybe an inch and a quarter long. I have the exploded diagram from the dealership but can't find my springs in their pictures. Help! Please!

Chuck,

I looked at the file you suggested and it will help a great deal. I hope to put it back together tonight. I had to order springs as one of the longer ones escaped unnoticed so I only had two. I had my daughter taking pictures as I took it apart and we both missed the little bugger. Thanks for the help!

OK, I put the kit in and reinstalled the control valve. The steering wheel just turns left on its own. So I'm guessing I have the hoses on wrong or the wrong side forward. So which outlets should be forward?

I am in need of an installation diagram for this kit. I have recently acquired the kit but no instructions. It appears way more complicated than necessary just to provide a switched 12v source? I would like to use it but it may be easier to just fabricate my own harness...Thanks!
