Welcome aboard. Not a hydraulic expert, but I would start with a fluid change using correct fluid. Change filter too. Then I would crack open lines at steering cylinder and make sure fluid is going in an out. Might be a bad cylinder?
Big question, did this problem just pop up, or was it there when u got the tractor??
As always pics would be nice as well as history of what you've done. Tom

Sounds like the valve is stuck? It is attached to the pitman arm coming out of the steering box. It will have 4 hoses attached to it. This must move back and forth about 1/2" in both directions. It is what tells the cylinder to do when you turn the steering wheel.

 this weekend i am going to remove the steering valve on my 195 because it is also stuck. i will let you know how that goes. doesn't look too hard to rebuild if there is no rust on the spool.
