Anyone experience bad power steering fade with their full hydro.? 22 re psc 8 inch ram, trail gear 1650 pump, amazon 15 inch finned cooler mounted in front of the rad but behind the winch. I have hard steering at low rpms. Maybe different size pulley? also gets real bad after running for a while. everything in fairly new . Changed cooler from a 8x tranny cooler to the tube style didnt help. Ideas??

Does it whine? where is the reservoir mounted? How big is the return line? maybe take a pic of the reservoir location.

Pump and/ or fluid.

Pump maybe weak, but also fluid maybe not able to withstand heat being generated.

What type fluid being used? I’ve ran Lucas synthetic and also sweepco from PSC.

All performed well.

Both buggies had thermal wrap on lines and huge circulation cooling.
