Is oil level up in the transmission, which is the hydraulic reservoir? If you loosen hose at the steering cylinder, do you get oil out , when turning the steering gear, engine running? Does the three point lift the arms?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Three point lifts arms, oil is full....when turning steering wheel. ..just continues straight air in line?

What hose blew? Did it have anything to do with steering?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The hose that blew was off the bottom of the hydraulic pump
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 3 months ago.

Is this a single power steering cylinder, or does it have two? Raise the front end of tractor and see if you can turn the wheels raised. Cylinders may need to be bleed ,by steering them in both directions while raised.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Tried that and are getting minimal steering
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 3 months ago.

twin cylinders? figure out which hose is pressure when you bottom the cylinders in either direction, and remove hose from the other end of th cylinder. Then pressure the cylinder again, in same direction, and see if oil cones out the open hole, if it does cylinder is leaking internally, if it comes out the open hose, from other cylinder, the opposite cylinder has internal leakage If no oil pours out, the cylinders are good, and it is no pressure from pump. The relief valve for the steering may be stuck open.
