Tight Steering
#1
I have been putting back my interior and today put in the driver seat so thought I would take her out for a quickie.  Steering feels very tight, is it possible that could be caused by me putting back the steering column to tight (I dropped it down to take out the gauge cluster.  I also put back on the crappy Grant steering wheel as well and tightened that down.  Could either one of these cause the tight steering feel, I don't recall it feeling like that when I parked it?

Did you rebuilt the pump? There is a procedure to check the pressure I noticed in the Ford manual. It should be easy to turn if PS.
Since the column is two pieces that slide in each other to allow it to telescope in a crash do not see a bind coming from how you bolted it up. 
Maybe look at the rag joint and see if it is distorted, like column mount too low or too high.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I know my PS pump leaks a tad and I just checked it, need to add some fluid. When I complete the interior I will move onto the engine bay and pull the pump for rebuild.

yes, it was not as tight. Think I will back off the screws just a bit and also add some PS fluid

well it turned out to be this Grant wheel post cover (black) up was too tight against the adapter hub so I put a washer between it and the adapter hub and all is well.
