Rebuilt steering box problems

Hey, long time reader first time asking anything.
Iím building a 98 xj right now and currently having problems with the steering gear. I just rebuilt the Saginaw box and tapped it for hydro assist. I tapped the top plate and the end plug. Box is in ram is hoses connected I bleed the system and it seemed perfect. A little hard to steer but not terrible. Then all Of a sudden it starts to turn right on itís own. I can move it centre but still wants to pull right. It does it if the ram is connected to the tie rod or not. Motor off ram disconnected and turn left and right ram moves the way it should. Did I bang up a seal in the box during rebuild? Iím kinda confused
