Hi Jani and welcome :wave: which pump are you referring to? The fuel injection pump? the fuel lift pump? or the hydraulic pump? I am sure that somebody could offer you some advice. :thumbup:

How about contacting this company? https://www.muir-hill.co.uk/

They appear to have recently renewed their website and there is not much on there at the moment.

So it has a separate steering pump from the main hydraulics? If so it is likely to be driven by a belt or bolted directly to the engine, usually at the front of the engine.

Hi Jani

Some information the steering is actuated by a flow controlled vane type pump,driven directly from the front of the transmission. The oil delivery is approximately proportional to the speed of the drive,but the volume delivered to the ram is limited by a flow control valve which bleeds off excess hydraulic oil and returns it to the hydraulic tank.
The pump is driven by a short shaft,early version had a spline one end and was keyed the transmission end,later version was splined each end. In the back of my mind I think I have heard of these shafts failing. Part number for splined both ends is 252237.
You could have a problem with the steering valve under the cab.
Now getting to that pump........! Not good as with most items on the machine,I will have a look at mine and also make an enquiry for you.

Cheers John
