    Installed a new steering valve after the old one was jammed up with metal pieces . Cleaned out the lines changed oil and filter. Last year main pump blew apart and sent metal every where .started machine up and jacked front end up in air and started rotating the steering wheel to push air out of the system . It steers ok but still a little jerky and sticks once in awhile . Anybody have any ideas where to go now .
