 no power steering

i have an international 340, after about 20 minutes of running it the power steering goes out as well as the 3point hitch does not go up or down. if i let it sit for a few minutes the steering will return but go out again shortly after. if i open the drain plug behind the seat when the tractor is off it sucks air in. not sure if this is normal. any help would be great.

Sounds like the vent-to-atmosphere is clogged and what may be happening is the reservoir is under a vacuum starving the pump of fluid--which, if it is the case, will destroy the pump in no time if it keeps up.

If you remove the cap and run it longer than 20 minutes what happens? If it's a vacuum problem like I suspect, it should work properly with the cap off.

I'm a thinkin low fluid. It's all pumped into the sysyem then drains back. The PS is usually the first to feel it. Also check your filters.

The little 504 my boy has does the same thing.

Check your filters, Add 5gal of fluid.

There is a fine steel screen on your filter, and there is a valve on it that would give you about twenty minutes of operating time before it would close if clogged.

IH has always filtered the oil before going to the pumps and this is a tell tale sign of a clogged filter!

Harvey, does your son's machine suck air in also when the cap is removed?

hi this is my first tractor and i just got it so i don't know that much about them. i added 7 gals of fluid at the transmission, and the guy i got it from said that he just changed the filter. in your response to my first question you said to check my filters. is there more than one filter that i need to be looking at? the only one that was changed was the one on the right side of tractor when sitting on it a canister about 18 inches long. there appears to be another canister in front of the shifter lever below the steering wheel.
thanks

EW Not sure but do not think so. The only time I could envision some air moving would be with 3ph operation.

It's the tractor I got out of a hedgerow a couple of years ago. The paper filters were completely destroyed. It had issues all but the rusted and broken off draft valve work fine now. Still have some tinker stuff to fix.

The screen Art mentioned is in the housing on the right side where you changed the filters, if I remember right. I can not remember how much oil goes back in, but it seems like 15 gallons, DO NOT QUOTE ME ON THAT!

Harvey there should not be any air per se at the reservoir--neither vacuum NOR pressure. If there is, then there is a venting problem. If the system can't breathe something is going to implode or explode, suck air and oil, or blow both.

hey harvey i won't quote you on the 15 gals of fluid, there is no dipstick on this tractor for the fluid. how do i know if it is full or not? and is it possible to overfill the system?

Have you looked for a pipe plug or removable cap a.k.a "level indicator" or "sight hole"? It may be like a vehicle axle differential filler plug---you can only put so much in before it spills out.
