    I have a jcb 212s. There's a steering alignment valve under the hood for when the steering gets out of alignment in crab. Years ago I could run it week and not had to touch it. Not it's gotten progressively worse. Now it's every hour I have to flip the valve. I took both cylinders off and tested them they tested fine. Just not sure where to go next. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    How did you test the cylinders. If the problem became worse I would suspect the piston seals leaking. Have you checked the port reliefs. Otherwise if this is like a telehandler check the springs on the valves are not broken, maybe try running the machine with the coils disconnected

    Has your machine got power track rod with ball joints or steering rams with pins?
