Jinma 354 steering seemed as though the power assist had gone out felt very heavy while plowing snow even after an hour today. Changed over to 303 fluid this past summer. Temps overnight were minus 5, today in the teens . Is it the pump or do I need to go to a thinner fluid? Tractor sits outside under a tarp.

Hey,saw your post on ctoa,don't know much about an answer,but the minus 5 might be a clue,and I use aw 32,plain ole hydro oil,I believe its 10 weight,the tractor fluid is 20 weight,might be wrong. I've never run mine in temps below about 20 degrees so I might have the same problem as you at minus 5,who knows? They was a guy on the ctoa board saying he was changing his oil today at 13 below,I believe,and was having trouble with the oil filter gasket leaking,I don't know how he got the old oil out and new oil in at that temp. anyways? Musta done it in a heated garage,but he didn't act like it. Anyways,if it quites being slugish when temps warm up to about freezing then thats the problem,you got to warm it up good also when its cold,I wouldn't even try to move it when its that cold without letting it warm up for 20 to 30 min.,but you probably knew all that. Richard

Hi Richard
I'm only a couple hours north of you. It was pretty cold up here last night. I think it may have been colder a couple of weeks ago while plowing and it steered fine. I felt a sharp tug on the steering wheel. Maybe it decided it had seen enough cold who knows? It seems to me that it would have loosened up a little after an hour of arm stronging it but never did. Chip said it may be a bypass pressure spring of some sort.
Mike

A common problem that can happen is with colder temperatures the oil naturally gets thicker. You should let your tractor warm up before use. When you changed oil in the spring, you should also have changed the filter. I would also suggest that you use the manufacturer's filter. My point is a non-factory filter may not be as strong. Some times the filter can get damaged or plugged with dirt but also from attempting to run too cold (too thick) of hydraulic fluid through it to fast. The pump is attempting to suck thick hydraulic fluid through it faster than the filter will allow it to pass causing it to collapse. Once collapsed it will not operate correctly and will need to be replaced. I had a similar problem and replacing the filter did the trick.

My hydraulics runs quite slow until it warms up. Suggest letting the tractor warm up for 5-10 minutes before use, you should be able to see the temp. gauge creep up. After this, I run my loader or back blade up and down a number of times to get hydraulic flow going.

I don't think it has a filter on the power steering pump on the 354. Does anyone know if it does? And where its located.
Thanks

There is no filter on the 304 or the 354 for power steering. By now the temp has risen and steering should be returning to normal. Recommended on other board go to lighter fluid if you are going to run in those low temps. Fluid res. is before the radiator so it is not going to warm up much from use. Could run a hair dryer near the res. if you really want to go in such cold weather. Small mag heater on res. will also work.

Its about 33 degrees out just started tractor but still no steering. I also removed pressure valve spring all I could see was some type of pin about an inch or so down. The pin was down and wondering if it should be?
