Loss of Power Steering,,,,

Just got my salvage title 11 on the road yesterday. So far I love this thing, it is awesome!! All of a sudden, when turning back to center from a left turn, the steering would lock for a second, then release. It did that a few times, then all of a sudden, no power steering at idle. Once the engine rev's up, it comes back. I did all of the rebuild myself, but the hit was high on the right side and the steering system was not touched. Has anyone else had a steering issue with their ride?

So a trip to the Ford dealer today, $89 bucks later, they tell me that there is a service bulletin on the power steering pump and reservoir tank. Seems that I ran the truck before I filled the pump and reservoir with oil, (my bad) and the air in the system took out the pump. The service bulletin is for an upgrade only, so tomorrow I change a pump. *#@! I hate myself sometimes,,,,
