on the Power Steering Control Valve there are 4 inlet and outlets at the bottom of these inlet and outlets there are removable Aluminium seals that seal up against the flare nuts on the rubber hoses (I Hope that makes sense)
 My question is how do you get the old Alum inserts out , the control valve is out of the car on on the bench

yeah - I just had to do this.

1. Put the control valve in a vice
2. use a self-tapper screw do screw into the seat. there are 2 different size seats so you need to find screws that screw into the seat and then grab.
3. When it grabs take a pair of pliers and grab the screw then holding the pliers in one hand, tap the pliers with a hammer with the other hand.
4. The seat should pull out.

I got my replacement seats from CJ pony parts.

thanks I'll give it a go , I was also thinking about using an easyout (the tool you use to get broken studs and bolts out )

Possibly an ezy-out could work - I've never done this - but I would think an Ezy-out would work for stuck THREADS not necessarily for press fittings (which I assume the seats are?)

I just rebuilt the steering control in the Galaxie and the Mach1, and the Galaxie doesn't leak, and there is only minor differences in effort to go left-right as to right-left, so I think it just needs an adjustment of the nut under the cover to even that up.

Just curious how you went with the new tube seats ?

New ones didn't fix my leaks.
