new guy here. I have a 64 supermajor 5000 backhoe with a front loader not running. I need to be able to steer it but cannot turn the wheels with the steering wheel. It has a power steering ram on the left side only. Is there a relief valve somewhere to make steering easier? I am assuming that they have one so one can steer if the tractor ever dies. thanks for any help

These do steer hard when the tractor is dead. There is a valve inside of the power steering cylinder that was siezed on my power major when I got it. I had to disassemble the power steering cylinder, free it up, and install new seals and o rings that I got from my local hydraulic rebuild shop. I think about the only way to take the pressure off on a dead tractor would be to lossen the hoses on the cylinder and let the oil out. But be sure to refill the system before you start it. Also you will not beable to steer it unless it is rolling. Dandy Dave! This post was edited by Dandy Dave at 04:47:20 04/21/10.
