In need of turn signal switch
Posted: Tue Jul 16, 2019 11:40 pm
I'm unable to keep my right turn signal on and am searching for a replacement switch or ideas for using from another vehicle. Is there a rebuild kit for the steering gear? I have no power steering whatsoever and am not familiar how this hydro boost system operates. Thanks in advance.

I believe the turn signal switch is a basic item most napa stores should be able to get it. it is a pain to get to as you have to pull the steering wheel. but I would take it to napa and see if they can locate it.
first I have to ask did your chassis not come equipped with power steering or is it not hooked up?
If its not equipped you will have to locate a pump two lines and a replacement gear box. all this can be done with a little research.
if its not hooked up do the following.
- I would imagine you or someone has removed the belt for one reason or another (most likely a leak).
I would start by replacing the belt.
Then top off your pumps reservoir.
Turn on the motor and turn the wheel back and forth (from stop to stop) a few times this will fill the system. do this a few times then check the level in the resistor topping off as needed.
This is also a good time to look for leaks. Most common is from the input shaft seal. This can be fixed with gear box in place!
