HELP with power steering

I was on my way to school and once i had gotten there my powersteering went out and i couldn't turn the wheel really easy. Then later that night i took it apart and checked the lines and they seem to be clear of anything that could clog them and then i put everything back together and then i follwed the insructions on how to bleed the system but that didn't work. The power steering works well when im driving it and the RPMs are at 2000 but then whenever i stop or let the RPms go down it gets hard to steer. My setup is a 1990 chevy 350 in a YJ. I am using the chevy pump and the jeep powersteering gearbox. is there some kind of pressure issues that can develop with this system or how can you detect a bad gearbox or bad pump? Please help

so you think that the pump is just not feeding enough pressure.
