    You can get a rebuild kit from Studebaker International Part # 1553403 for $12.75 (2010 prices). Pretty easy to do, just don't mix up the hoses when you re-install everything. Alternatively you could have F**D dealer do it for you for $100.00/hr plus parts

      By "arm" I am assuming ram and the answer above applies.
      If by "wine" you mean whine, that is usually coming from the pump, not the ram.

        Normally, the whine from the pump is a sign of a low fluid level. Your leaking "power-ram" (located directly under the radiator) is an obvious cause of low fluid, but I would suggest you inspect all of the power steering components for leaks. All component overhaul kits/seals and hoses are readily available from many SDC vendors. Hope this helps.

          Thanks for all the info I ordered the power steering rebuild package from SI. I hope this will do it as the fluid was black, my guess is the hoses went bad.
