Since you said the fluid was black I would say the problem is old fluid/ lack of maintenance.

Flush the old crap out with fresh fluid, make sure there is no air in the system and see how it goes.

Use the newer stuff, R1-424 power steering fluid, it doesn't go black and lasts longer. I have it in my 88EA, no probs.

My EA had the slow speed and stationary shuddering.
Pedders told me that they shudder anyway and there was no magic fix.

A slipping belt can cause it too. More than happy to have a look at it if you like.
