1979 885 power steering

The power steering on my 885 has become increasing "notchy" for want of a better word. I remember it being like it 20 odd year ago when it had a lot of weight on the loader but now it is like it constantly until about half revs, it improves a little when warm.
It is this set up/ pump:

My first call is to change the oil and filter as I'm not sure when my late dad would of last done it.

Does it need a particular oil?
While it drained down is there any common problems that I should be looking at?

Once again thanks in advance for the wealth of knowledge here and the willingness to share 8)

Hi, check the belt is tight first, the filter only filters the return oil so if it was blocked it will not make the steering hard or notchy

The belt is good, guessing that means the next port of call will be a pressure test. I can see this getting expensive
