I have just changed my powersteering pump over with a reco one. At low idle the powersteering seems really tight as if there is no power steering at all does anyone know what it could be?

perhaps it needs a bit of time to "loosen up" like a new engine does? before it will perform optimally??... what power steering oil did you use?

Did you cycle the steering to ensure all air is out of the system?

Yeh i flushed out the lines and rotated the steering wheel one pump was fitted. I used proper power steering fluid. But i think it might be the power steering switch which adjusts the idle to compensate for the powersteering at low idle

my boss says it doesnt really matter what power steering oil you use flush it and clean the lines because reinstalling a new pump with dirty lines isnt going to do any good for the Rebuilt pump
