    The advice I get is that it's sucking air. All the fittings I can see are clean, smooth, and tight.

    Help
    If you have the pump that's driven off the timing cover with reservior attached to it, it has a filter in the resevior. I had this problem on my Ford 4610 and I replaced the filter and the problem went away. The filter is about $10 and you can find them at a NH dealer or on ebay.

    Go to CNH website and look up your steering parts diagram - should help you figure out what you are looking at.

    hope somebody is out there.
    I had to remove the oil reservoir to get at the power steering reservoir, but cant get the PS reservoir off because of a sadistic bracket connected to the generator (alternator?). Is there a trick because I would have to remove my FEL to get the generator off.

    oil filter cover - not reservoir
    As forthe bracket, its an unused portion that takes a 90 degree bend and overlaps an indent in the PS res.
    It's 3/8" steel or I would bend/cut it off.
