you have to bleed the system,,,with the engine running turn it to full lock one way,,hold for a few seconds only then turn to opposite lock and hold for a few seconds,,then repeat once more,,it gets the air out of the system.

Have you re-checked it? Did it need a top up?

Since the conversion, mine is doing the same thing, but it hasn't come good yet.

I didn't know you have to bleed it, i'll give that a go.
