I was using a tiller on my 1520 John Deere. Suddenly the three point would not lift at all. The power steering worked just fine but by the time I got the tractor put away,about 15 minutes the power steering lost all assistance.The oil is at proper level and the filter has maybe 10 hours on it.Where do I start cheching before I start taking things apart?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have seen the pump drive turning and can feel something going on when I put my hand on the pump but I never thought that it may be stripped out. I will check that and let you know
