Default Power Steering Flush and Screen Cleaning

My power steering pump was whining like the dickens when started cold at low temperatures. I picked up a few tips for this project from some of the threads on this web site. I did a flush and screen cleaning on the power steering for my Cruiser and thought I'd share:

Very good video. This looks easy enough for even me to attempt. Great job!

Super job. I would only add 2 things in reference to my doing the same. First, I never could get the screen acceptably clean so I replaced the reservoir. Second, I highly recommend using synthetic ATF when you flush/refill.
