Power steering problem 3.0crd

I have completed an engine swap and now my power steering wont work unless i rev the engine to 2500 rpm. I changed pumps, still the same. I warmed the engine up last night until the fan kicked in and now it is slightly better. Has anyone experienced this before?

Did you bleed the system for air? Just doing 20 or so full stop to stop turns should remove any air in the system.

I have done this at least 100 times with no improvement. Is there a bleed screw somewhere?

No, there is no bleed screw in the power steering system. Does the pump make strange noises as if it runs without fluid? Does your jeep have the hydraulic cooling fan setup?

Re: Power steering problem 3.0crd

Thanks for your replies. As a last resort I ran the engine until the fan kicked in. Power steering started to work instantly.
