I have a 72 corvette convertible and rebuilt the power steering pump, control valve and power steering pump.  I now have no power steering.  Any ideas what I should check first.  Is there a way to check each item to determine if it is working properly?  Thanks David

You could loosen fittings one at a time to check for pressure at various points.  If I had to guess, I would say thet you crossed you lines at some point.

 Have you bled the lines of air, and balanced the system?  A check valve replaced in reverse?
