If you only replaced the seal on the end of the steering cylinder and did not do a total cylinder repacking, the packing inside the cylinder could be bypassing the fluid. I've not checked the pressure on the pump as have no suggestion as to how either, but I would think a tee into the high pressure side of the steel line with a high pressure guage (3000 lb to be safe) would give you the pressure output while operating.
I'm not saying that is what you should do, it is something I might try if I had that issue. The problem you'd face would be obtaining the proper fittings to do it safely. Maybe someone else will chime in with some proper information for you.

You may try a google search for Ford parts, there are a lot of ag as well as industrial units that use that same pump. Still thinking about your cylinder bypassing packing internally...keep us posted and good luck.

Thanks for your reply, I have replace all interal o rings, seals, all other interal parts looked just fine, put back together added fluid and started it up thought it would solve the problem, only to fine it was just as hard to steer, thought you might know of something else that might cause the problem, don't mine to replace the pump if I thought that was it, it just looked to goood on the inside when I replaced the o rings, I used the rebuilt kit that it calls for. If you think of any thing please let me know thanks again, Debra
