Hi Peter My name is***** will be glad to try to help. Please confirm the pressures you are getting to release the steering clutches. The clutches are spring applied and pressure released. You should be seeing around 400PSI of release pressure when releasing a clutch on each side for steering

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Check and verify the clutch release pressure for both right and left side and also drain the steering clutch housings and look for metal and friction material in the housings and drain oil indicating worn brakes and clutches. Let me know
