300tdi Power Steering question
Ok, I've searched and searched... But I have an embarrassingly dumb question.
I just got my first Land Rover Defender, it's a 1995 300tdi, and I don't know the first thing about them...even though I am pretty mechanically inclined.
I am a US expat living in Tunisia, so local mechanical help is hard to come by.
So, here is the dumb question:
How hard should it to be to turn the steering wheel if the power steering pump is working properly?
I've driven strictly mechanical steering trucks before, and this one (which is supposed to be power steering) is much harder than any of them. Is it just a Defender quirk, or do you think I need a new pump?
When it is barely moving, I need to use a lot of arm strength to turn the wheel, and I'm not a little guy...
