Try bleeding the system to be sure air isnt your problem. Belts should be pretty easy to spot if that is what is making the noise.

well i can tell you its not atf :( its clear fluid so i guess ill drain it and flush it out. i have a bunch of dex 3 and dex 4 in the garage, what to you all suggest i use in it?

i should have it on the road by tomorrow afternoon as long as the emissions goes ok. it passed with flying colors 3 years ago before i put it in storage :) thinking a oil change is a top priority for sure.

I thought ATF and power steering fluid were interchangeable (at least in the power steering system).

Put ATF in it and it seems to be working ok besides having a small resistence when turning right from center but it's such a small amt of resistance that I can ignore it

Hmm. I need to see what's in my little truck then, cuz it's loud (almost like Ford loud).
