Default power steering problems

Hello enthusiasts, I'm having problems with my power steering. Had a leak in my 68 Mustang control valve and after putting in new seals and turning wheels back and forth to bleed air out the pump gets pretty hot pretty quick and making noise on a new pump with less than two hundred miles on it (pump was replaced because of leaks) wheel turns easily to the left and hard to the right. I did all this following instructions in my Haynes manual. I want to enjoy driving this car and not repeatedly rework the control valve that I've taken off and apart several times to debug it. It runs fantastic and it wants to hit the road. The lines have all been replaced and no kinks in them. Any quick fixes would be appreciated. Thank you very much.
