STEERING SYSTEM TESTS, INSPECTIONS, AND ADJUSTMENTS - CONTINUED
STEERING TIME CHECK - CONTINUED
Pump may have excessive wear. If so, replace pump (WP 0182 00).
If cycle time is slow for only one steering circuit, circuit with slow cycle time should be tested for one of these
Low relief valve setting.
Leak in circuit.
Control spool that is not shifting fully.
If steering times are consistently slow in one direction, replace secondary steering relief valve (WP 0104 00).

(2.59 ± 0.23 Nm).
Pull wire from shaft. Connect wire to horn button.
Install horn button on steering wheel (WP 0098 00).
STEERING WHEEL SLIP CHECK
Ensure machine is in straight-ahead position.
Slowly turn steering wheel through one revolution so there is minimum articulation.
Slowly turn steering wheel in opposite direction so there is minimum articulation.
Slowly turn steering wheel through one revolution to left three times. Record time needed for each revolution of steering
Slowly turn steering wheel through one revolution to right three times. Record time needed for each revolution of steer-
Add recorded times for three left turns together.
Add recorded times for three right turns together.
If total for three left turns and total for three right turns are 60 seconds or more, then slip is acceptable.
If each total is greater than 60 seconds, problem is in steering system. Refer to Steering System Troubleshooting in
