My son has a Legacy with the B&S diesel in it. It runs fine, but about 3 months ago the power steering decided to stop working. The tractor will go forward and backward and the 3 point will work although maybe slowly. He doesn't have anything hooked to it, so it's kind of hard to tell. I looked at it today, trying to figure it out, with no luck. He changed oil and filter in the hydro with the proper oil and filter as a routine maintenance item, but he can't remember whether it worked before or after that. ( I know that makes a huge difference on what to look for but he's got a lot on his mind and just can't remember). I thought maybe it was an airlock problem but have tried every method to work the air out of it to no avail, if that's what it is. Is there a pressure relief valve somewhere that might have stuck, or a broken spring, and just where do I look for that??
(It's been really dry in this area for three months with no need to mow, so it just sat)
I can find very little on these tractors on the net, so here I am looking for help!! I don't know of ANYONE that has one around here to discuss it with.
Thanks for any help!
P.S. I posted this on another forum, also. Just trying to find answers, so bear with me.
