Poor mans PS on a PS tractor?

Recommended Posts


I know it's redundant but has anyone ever put the Poor mans PS mod on a tractor that has real PS? Probably wouldn't help much with the steering but it would definitely help with wear.

I have not done it YET but it will be getting done on my early Sunstar loader tractor as soon as I change the front end to the parts used on the later versions machines which are improved greatly for durability.

I have Poorman's PS on my 75th that has spool PS.

But that's because I did the Poorman's PS modification before I installed the spool PS kit.

Never had a PS tractor before, so I don't know if the Poorman's makes a difference with "real" PS, but I doubt it does.

I was under the impression that "poor man's power steering " was a spinner knob added to the steering wheel!:D

I put it on my dad's PS Sovereign when I had the front end apart for other reasons anyway. As stated.it doesn't make any difference in steering effort, just wear on front components. didn't cost much to order the parts since I was placing the order for my old non ps sovereign anyway.

      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!😁
