They are not o ring boss on the top of the cylinder, just regular 1/2" pipe.
I've done the ones I put together with a solid shaft just because, mine had a slight bend in it when I got it and when i put the garrison I added the rod.

Hi Tony,
My control valve has 90 degree fittings screwed into the body. The end that was leaking looked like JIC. Maybe the other side of the fitting is O-ring boss, but
it's dry now.

Got the tie rod off. It's bent in multiple directions, including the stem of the tie rod end where it screws into the rod.
Going to borrow a straight rod from a donor chassis.
Control valve leak seems like it was just a loose fitting.

I believe those are SAE O-ring Boss fittings. They use SAE O-ring Boss o-rings. Not just a regular o-ring size.

Aaron,
Do you think the rod needs reinforcing to handle the force imposed by the steering cylinder ?
I was thinking the damage was related to `the truck ending up in a ditch. The underside of the passenger side fuel take was stoved in also.

I'd put a solid shaft in it also.

Thanks again Aaron.
It's nice to have an idea of what's in there.

Straighten in a press, get a solid shaft that fits inside, bore  a few holes in the tube and plug weld it, been running mine that way for years.
You don't have this?
I'll put all of what I have up, Tony would you be able to move them to the other section.

Thanks for the reply Aaron.
Sounds like we have different 8 page sections of the manual. Mine has no breakdown of the control valve .
Installation instructions. See attached.

The tie rod in question also has a nice bend in it where it was driven upward (truck is an ex-logger). How do you feel about straightening in a press ?

All of the above Jim, LaChance told me to turn the ends of the tie rod but i never have, seems to me to be counter productive of what the tie rod is made to do.
 Thats all I have is that 8 page book, it has the complete breakdown of the reaction rings and how its put together, I have one that needs the same thing but the rings in mine need to be changed to a little slower set of rings as I'm always sawing on the wheel to keep it in line, the one on the truck now works correct, I'll most like;u send it to SL: for an overhaul.
