Note: Steering and suspension are safety areas of your truck. Follow factory guidelines and shop procedures when working on your vehicle's steering system.

What Did You Learn This Month?
Night School would not be complete without a quiz! Don't worry about your test-taking skills or grades. This is an open-magazine, true or false test. Clues can be found within the Night School text, photos and captions. Have a good month!

True or False Questions:
1. Heavier engines and bigger car bodies made power steering a necessary option.

2. Saginaw's offset steering gears were compact and well-suited for light truck use.

3. GMC was the first American truck brand to use an integral power steering gear. The design was Saginaw's inline type.

4. Linkage-type power steering was easily adapted to beam axle trucks. Some manufacturers offered linkage assist power steering retrofit kits.

5. An integral power steering gear is easy to rebuild. You do not need special tools or a shop manual to restore a power steering gear.

6. The Saginaw inline gear was more compact than the offset design. Many advanced features of the inline carry over to the rotary valve gear.

7. All power steering pumps are the same, and all power steering systems operate at the same pressure. If you need a power steering pump, any one will do.

8. A Saginaw 605 gear is compact and easier to mount in tight-fitting applications. However, the 605 gear does not have the stamina of a Saginaw 808 model.

9. If there is a lot of steering wheel play and a rough feel in an integral power steering gear, an adjustment should fix it. There's no need to disassemble and inspect the unit.

10. During a rebuild, the Saginaw rotary valve gear requires worm bearing adjustment and an over-center rack-and-sector tooth mesh adjustment.
