Re: jerky steering?
<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>To purge the air jack the front wheels off the ground and with the engine running cycle the steering wheel back and forth a bunch of times. Could probably do it driving around a parking lot or something too. Have you checked the belt? If it's glazed then it's probably slipping.
400v8, it's the frame that needs to be reinforced where the steering box bolts on, and if your trucjk hasn't had it done then you should REALLY pull the steering box and check for cracks. This isn't something that happens sometimes, it happens to pretty much every one of the 73-87 Chevy trucks. If you let it go long enough it will do some pretty major damage to the frame.
