Your steer valve needs re-sealed and re-calibrated,,do you have any one near you that can do that?, It takes a little know how and a set-up tool...

hey Tim S these boys asked me about this 3020 acting up on them and I had them post their problem. what they havent mentioned is that the tractor worked fine before the hydraulic pump was repaired and the lines reassembled. first thing that came to my mind was that there is air in the lines. Is this possible. and if so can it be bled out. I hate to see them take out the steering valve if that isnt the problem, its a lot of work. again the steering on the tractor worked great but they had the main hydraulic pump repaired and put everything back together, they get oil pressure out one steering line but not much if any out the other. Is there a way of any diagnosis Thanks for any help

Well that scenario could change the problem,,as for air in the system that"s not likely the problem,,some times the valve can kinda hang up,,jittering the steering wheel "could" shake it loose,,maybe,,maybe taking the weight off the front end and manualing it back the other way then starting the engine,,be careful of the wheel "kicking" when they start it up,,,the valve is sticking or bumped out of adjustment,,some times a bit of wear on the actuating lever will take the valve to the edge of being out of tolerance, then a shock of some kind finishes it off..
