My 1170 has sat for 10 years not running. I got it running, changed all the fluids and filters. Hydraulics and brakes work good but it steers hard. It is easier after it warms up but not near as good as it should. What should I check?

Jack the front axle up so the tires are not touching the ground. Disconnect the two hyd steering hoses that come down from the back of the cab door side of engine. Now you should be able to manually move the tires from side to side. If you can not there is something tight in the cylinders or spindles and you will have to check those out. If everything moves freely you could have a pump issue and further testing would be in order. If you tractor has the tilt steering lever on the dash those systems do sometimes have a heavier feel in steering wheel effort, Rod.
