mf 245 power steering

gs mininger Just had a steering ram re-sealed, got the equivlent to Permatran-3 at a local parts house, does this tractor use a lighter fluid in the power steering unit, seems like the pump is not getting fluid to steering box or to assist rams, was working fine before rebuid just had to fill with fluid, seems to me this tranny fluid is to thick, what would be the original type fluid for this model. seems to me the prior fluid I was using was much thinner, any help will do.
GEEBEE Permatran 3 is the correct oil. You may have a bunch of air in it ?To bleed remove filler plug an' work steering lock to lock with engine running until all bubbles are gone, this can take some time, refill as you go.
gs mininger Thanks GEEBEE for your response, I filled with fluid and had someone move wheels left and right to draw fluid into cylinders and with the engine on left in locked position for sometime like the manual says but to no avail. There is totally no assist to the steering, is there a bypass valve or acheck valve somewhere that could be stuck open, also what would be the difference between a bad power steering pump versus an orbital steering motor, at theses prices I would prefer buying the rigt part first and not have to go through the motion of getting gigged by buying both parts only to find it could be something else, also why are these orbital motors not being rebuilt, I could not find any of them anywhere and nobody seems to say they are available, at these prices I need to save every penny to help pay for the fuel at $4.29 a gallon, all help will be appreciated, I know you former dealer mechanics have dealt with this problem on the1 and 2 series tractors and by reading a few of these questions in this forum it seems to be a common situation, my problem with my dealer is he wants to send out a truck, pick up the tractor, work on it in the shop and then send me a $2500.00 bill, I still have half a brain and all ten fingers, ain't as bright as I used to be but I can still count in dollars and sense, Thanks again
