917-H Power Steering

Recommended Posts

MDB
My Dad has been wanting power steering on his 917-H, finally found him one on Ebay a week or so ago. Here are some pics.

Power sterring setup

Rear mount for the cylinder

Steering valve

View of the hydraulic lines, plumbed right to the hydraulic lift and the hydrostat. Not too bad of a job to install one of these units, took less than 2 hours. and best of all the tractor steers like a dream....:D OBTW, I was going to leave this off when I did this project but VFD702 wouldn't let me.....

;):D

Mike, Nice work. I think they made two types of PS systems for the RBT's. Which version is this? I read someting about the hydrolift cutting out when you steer. Does that mean that if you have a plow raised up, then when you steer it will fall to the ground? Or does it just mean you cannot raise it or lower it from its current position?

this is the linkage type the other replaced the steering gearbox and the third was an assist before the gear box. I do not think you will lose any capacity as all the cylinders are two way and what is pushed in one end is let out on other end. Once again I'm thinking and that gets me in to trouble.

Thanks for all of the compliments guys, I played around with the 917 a little before I took it back to Dads place. The hydraulic lift and or the hydrostat did not seem to affect the power steering to any noticable degree. Sure does steer great, like a diferent tractor....:D Hey Marty, I got that 3314H that I posted pics of on trade for this job. Whats say I ditch the Running Boards on that one, then you and I will have matching non RB RBTs....:D:D:D

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
