Just bought this little tractor from the original owner. 1550 original hours. Having a little issue with the steering, turns great left but not much to the right. Just wondering if any of you guys can give some pointers on what to look for. It is a power steering tractor. All the rest of the hydraulics work fine and the fast hitch holds a load up and doesn't bleed off. It's too hot to mess with it right now.

That would tell you if your PS isn`t getting priority hydraulics to it that it should. Power steering should get first dibs on oil. If not a hydraulic problem, then it could be a chipped worm shaft or gear problem in the front steering bolster.

If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that
