If you do find that your pump is bad it is not that expensive to replace , as it is a pretty small GPM, 6gpm max most likely. I have seen these for sale for around $100 give or take few .
But before it is condemned let's see where the issues are first.

The elbow that was broken was on the right side of the loader.  There are 4 elbows there.

I found that there was a small kink in the return from the pump to the vertical upright that houses the fluid.  I fixed it.  Same issues though.

 

I actually logged on today to ask what you just said:

 

How can I test the pump to see if that's the issue?

First make sure your getting a good flow of oil to the pump when it is off.

 Second start tractor with the preasure hose off and in a 5 gallon pail and see iff it pumps any oil, it should have a nice steady stream from it. re connect the hose to the valve body, if it pumps nice. Make sure your at a low idle with the pump running for this next test:

 take a good pair of vise grips and try to pinch closed the high pressure hose, it should make the engine stall or the pump start to wine, if niether happens your pump is shot!

 Now that vise grip test is only if you have no gages and ball valve, as this would be the proper way to test preasures along with a seperate relief , but I'm sure you don't have these , so that will work in a jam. :smilewink:
