Just for info sake, this is in the gen 2 forum, and yours is a gen 3.

After having overheating issues with a few cars that were the radiator blocked up, I now always test flow in them. Just put hose in one end and try to block the flow with your hand clamped around the end, or a rag jammed in or similar. It shouldn't pressurise much if at all on your hand, but all go through to the other side. One of these cars was diagnosed by a mechanic to be head gasket, so I offered to do it for them as they were short of cash. I really should have trusted my own gut that it wasn't head gasket, but it happens

I'm not specifically sure on the pajero, but in I think all previous cars I've owned, you bleed power steering by turning the steering wheel to full lock either side repeatedly. I'll try and check on that though

This is from the factory manual for an NL, but I assume similar.

Apart from the electricity wires running along the street, I'm not sure

Got it figured out-the ignition cable from coil. Don't know how it took me this long. Just to stop the thing from starting

Does the steering operate alright as it is now? I'm not entirely sure the power steering pump is cactus.

Before you start replacing parts I would check the thermostat and radiator. Just throw thermostat into some boiling water and see if it opens. Radiator I've already mentioned how to check flow. Don't want to invest the time, effort and money and find out its something else that would be easy to check
