make hydraulic work
On my 245, one of the two valve body handles has to be out for the implement hydraulic pump to be engaged. I had to get the seller to come back out to my field to show me how to do it. If you have the right one, you can hear the hydraulic pump load up. Of course, make sure the hydraulic resevoir has enough fluid. Power steering should work all the time, I think it might be a different pump. Check your transmission sump if you don't find a separate hydraulic filler near the pump at the front of the engine. One circuit may work out of the transmission fluid. After filling an empty sump, have to turn steering full right and then full left to bleed it, then top off again. To bleed implement circuit, hook a hydraulic implement cylinder up to the disconeects, run all way up and down, refill sump. Implement sump can be regular hydraulic fluid, transmission sump should be the more expensive fluid with all the manufacturer rating.
