Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Check the filter/strainer and oil for metal debris casing a restriction of oil to the steering circuit and other internal problems. Try servicing and changing the oil and look for a plugged filter or screen. Also there may be a faulty steering valve as well. Click this link for more info. Let me know the results and if we need to dig deeper

we had a chance to work on sunday there were no clogs in lines has new hyd filter we unhooked tie rods from wheels wheels turn easy it seems like more oil comes from one side line than other. whats the chance the problem is within the power steering hand pump that bolts to steering wheel? it will be a few weeks before can get back to it as it has the fuel tank out for repairs. the hyd filter hah no metal within it.

Hi Dave, Thanks for the update. I agree if the pump checks good supplying good pressure to the steering valve and the steering cylinders have no pressure bypass inside the cylinders then the steering valve is likely the problem.
