L2250 power steering problem

bill Have an L2250 that has steering issues, the 4wd tractor is in 2wd with an empty bucket and can hardly turn the wheels unless moving or taking the weight off the wheels with the bucket. Don't quite know where to start troubleshooting, seems to have fluid, read on this forum the pwr steering is fed off the rear of the hydraulic pump How do I check?)..or disconnect connection at the pwr steering unit and check for fluid...thanks
jm. You are right in that the small line top rear of the hydraulic pump feeds the power steering. You can add a fitting or t right there and check for pressure. Could be worn pump but most likely something loose in the sector but check the pressure first.
bill What should the pressure be?
If the is psi would I expect any flow out of the return hose while the steering is static?


jm. On the Pump side you need to see at least 1500 psi , however DO NOT try and check on the return side, back pressure to the sector will blow the seals. And yes you will see full flow on the return line without any turning of the shaft.
