    Yes, it actually works great except for spraying out the fluid.

    Today, first thing I tried the power steering and again it was squirting fluid several feet in the air. I then tried it with the filter removed and it still worked and didn't squirt fluid. I then drained the Power Steering reservoir and cleaned it and put the filter back in and filled with fresh fluid. After this it worked and didn't squirt the fluid. I used the tractor for about 30 minutes and it worked fine. I'm not sure what made the difference, but I'm hoping this problem is in the past.
