THEORY OF OPERATION - CONTINUED
The power steering system consists of an integral steering gear (which includes a manual steering mechanism and
hydraulic control valve), hydraulic hoses, power steering pump, reservoir, and other components.
The power steering pump, driven by the engine, provides the power assist for the steering system.
TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM
The inter-axle differential lock is controlled by the air operated lever labeled INTER-AXLE DIFFERENTIAL on the drivers
instrument panel. Under normal driving conditions, the control lever should be in the UNLOCKED position. During poor driv-
ing conditions, the control lever may be moved to the LOCKED position to improve traction. When the inter-axle differential
lock is applied, the drive shaft becomes a solid connection between the two rear axles.
