Sunstar manual steering parts question

Recommended Posts


See the two bolts & spacers attached to the big steering gear in the center of the picture? What are they for?.. and can I remove them? They get slightly into one of my hydraulic hoses and if they are not needed it would be easier to remove them rather than move the hose. If they are stops, maybe I could shorten them up a little Its mainly the nuts that are contacting.

Well John, it does have power steering. Its using the Char-Lynn power steering from a Landlord DLX in conjunction with the Sunstars manual steering gears. those lines and hoses are above the ones in the picture. The hoses in the picture are from the dual hydralic cylinder setup in the tractor. One cylinder and lever for the mid lift and one lever and cylinder for the 3 point hitch on the back. I found these spacers to function as stops, so I flipped the bolts so the longer end with the nuts are now on top, and I used some slightly shorter spacers. Seems to have fixed the problem.

      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!😁
