Ok power steering issue

Like subject says I have an issue with my power steering it does great when turning left try to turn right and it is like I have no power steering at all any ideas?

I did rebuild the steering gear box a few months back to get rid of leaks

Did I put it back together wrong?

Probably not. It's more likely your power steering pump is on it's way out. When I did my 89 I replaced the steering box, pump, lines and shaft. My pump was acting the same way.

Anyway to test the pump?

I did some Internet digging and most information mentioned a check valve could be bad?

Is it replaceable?
