@NIW - when you write -

That with the steering loss, points to the pump or possibly it's just sucking air into the pump, look for weeping leaks around the suction pipe and all fittings.
I have seen and heard of them wearing holes in the suction pipe, having bad seals, and bad connections on rubber lines causing air to become entrained in the fluid causing all sorts of issues.

How would you suggest troubleshooting this? Would old school vacuum testing with smoke work from the automotive days?

Look for wet spots first, if it's at all dirty, clean around all the lines with a degreaser, then run it a bit and look for fluid, it won't be much.

There is 3. I replaced mine because they were dry rotted. Very light seepage on the protective braid but no dripping overall.
