Bleed Power Steering Help

I had to replace the hoses on my '86 CJ7 power steering last weekend and went through the process I had heard that would bleed the air from the lines....Jack up the front wheels and then with the Jeep running, I turned the wheels back and forth and added fluid. Seemed to do just fine while jacked up, then I took it wheelin on Saturday and ran for several hours. The power steering does not work like it used to on full turns. Going straight and minor turning works great, but full hard turns is still very hard. It seems to not take any more fluid and is not foaming like it's ridding itself of any more air in the lines. Almost like it is vapor locked in the lines. I had heard that driving it around for 20-30 will take care of it, but it hasn't seemed to help yet. Any ideas?
