Customer Question

I have a 1955 t-bird 3 speed manual and I have 2 questions
The power steering assembly control valve has a slow oil leak and so far the only way to fix it is to take it out and send it to be rebuilt- suggestions?
When I shift from 2nd to 3rd there seems to be more and not less torque , it is almost like 3rd is 2nd and 2nd is 3rd ?

good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

yes, remove the control valve and have it re built. it will be much cheaper than getting a new one

does the rpm change normally when you shift from 2 to 3??? if it were backwards, the rpm would rise in 3 rd

Thank you for the first answer
As to the second RPM does go up , how could it be backwards
thanks
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 10 months ago.

if there was a shifter issue, that would explain it being backwards
