martinpalma,

Did you bleed the air out of the lines and the pump and the box?

By the way where did you get the rebuild kit for the steering box and second why did it need to be rebuilt?
I ask this because my students and I can machine the box where they get worn out but ever since the wrecking yard that we did the machining for sold out to another guy, I have not been able to find a place to buy the new sleeves to press in or the seal kit to finish the job.

Thanks
Scholman

Air in the lines would be my bet. When I put my new box in, I have to turn the box lock-to-lock about 10-12 times to let the system bleed itself out.
