Need help with power steering problem. Must warn I know very little about tractors but do have operators, parts and service manuals. The problem is that it is just hard to turn. I did a complete service on the tractor this summer. After adding hyd. oil it turned a little easier for a very short time. It does turn to the right easier than to the left but not much. After turning either left or right, however, it does turn back very easy. My tractor has a front end loader also. The FEL was evidently added later as the levers are on a post coming up from the left support which runs from the front to back of the tractor. Am I right in that everything runs off the main hydraulic pump? Where should I begin to look for the problem?

If you get to the reservoir and fill it and still have a problem (asuming the belt is not slipping), here is something you can take a quick look at. If your front steerign assembly is like a 420 it will have the 90 degree gear box on top of the front vertical pedistal. If so the 1010 may have a worm gear in there like its predicessors. If so you can easily take the top off the box and look inside. Mine was full of steel filings because it had been driven for ever without any oil in the box. After overhauling the box, my power steering came to life. Take the 1010 owners advise first since I am surmising. PS If that is a 35 loader and you are saying the vlaves are mounted on the left side as you are looking at the tractor from the front, that is where my 35 loader shows them to be mounted - to valves for a power bucket and one valve for the trip bucket. Have fun!

What belt are you talking about that may be slipping?

Thanks. I think I can handle taking the top off the gear box. Not too difficult!

My 1010 has the steering pump with reservoir mounted just forward of the gear shift, inside the cowling. It has a round 6" lid on it. This is only for the power steering.

There is no steering pump where you are saying. I have seen that in the manuals but that is only if the tractor does not have an FEL.
