Powersteering pump noise

I have a 1984 Dodge 1 Ton 318 motor .When i turn the steering wheel to the left or right it makes a lot of noise. It is full of fluid i hate to go buy a new one even for that old truck it around 80.00 if it sits for awhile it does leek a little as it is not a daily driver . And you don;t have to turn it that far to left or right for it to make a lot of noise. thanks for any help.

A loud whining coming from the P S pump is
usually a sign of a pump going bad, there are
a couple of things you can try, first (easiest) a
couple of ounces of Sea Foam, next, bleed the sys.
next, change the PS pump, when you change the pump
be sure to flush all the old fluid out as it could have
metal in it,
Good luck,
