Stiff steering

  RB 182
Hi guys, hope someone can shed some light.

I've recently picked up a 182 with questionable history and a lack of communication from the dealer I got it from.

The steering is very stiff, not so much that I think pas has been removed as at a stand stiff I can feel it working but while driving its so stiff that I can let go mid corner and it would hold the turn angle perfectly and not move until I returned it.

It's not a big issue really it's just I want to work out if it's something a previous owner would do or if there is a pas problem?

Many thanks.

I'd be checking to see if it actually has a pa's pump still because if its siezed it'll be trying it's best to f**k the aux belt which usually goes straight into the timing belt.
