Steering issue

New to the garage , so hey to all of you! I have a 93 and am having problems out of the power steering. I lost all pwr. steering yesterday,put new pump on today and still no pwr. Is this a gear issue or what? Anyone else out there had this problem? Love my truck so much I bought another virgin just like her with only 158k actual. One is good and two is better!

Pump or gear box - without the tool to check the pump pressure it is a 50-50 chance, well not quite, it IS the pump about 7 of 10.

With the truck moving slow dial the steering wheel lock to lock 3-4 times and check the fluid level. If bleeding the air out does not help and the pressure hose is not leaking then it is the gear box.

steering issue

I actually figured out the problem today after going through all the steps and it was vacume locked at the booster. Feel real stupid for not checking that first! Thanks for the suggestion , I tried that and when taking it off to check the gear is when I found the problem. Now I know what to look for next time . Again, thanks for your help , truely a [email protected]##$ to drive without power steering.
