Default Benford 1000 Forklift Steering box

Hi All
I'm curently restoring a Benford 1000 Forklift (Im told quite rare, Anyone seen/used one its baised on a dumper chassis)
I have got most of the mechanicals all working so it is moveable.
The problem i have is without warning the whole thing shakes you to the bones as if the steering ram rapidly extends and retracts.
Obviously there is a fault with the hydraulic steering box (Valves I asume) but it also has a mecanical seering box with tie rod and the hydraulic box is on the bottom. I dont know the type or make as i cant find and details on the boxes.
I'm in the process of restoring her but just wonderd if and why there woud be mecanical and hydraulic steering.
Any one pulled steering mechanisimslike this to bits to repair if so any tips and where would you go for parts etc
I found another thread on here about a dumper steering box top seal having to be replaced But is not even similiar.
I will post some photos but not till monday.

Thanks all

Marcus
