well guys did not use a pump, just spliced into trans before the relief valve.plus did not use a powersteering box, all are to big an bulkey. i used a steering valve instead. its nice an small an fits in same spot as old steering box. have lots more pics if you want them. total cost less than $500.00 in parts. next one i do will be even less.it turns great an i used a u-joint an steering column for a street rod. a simple set up once i figured out everthing

Not being familiar with this series of tractor, I had always wondered if this were a possibility. I constructed a very similar power steering setup on my 1956 Minneapolis-Moline UB diesel. Another thought I had, but don't know about availability, is the power steering unit from certain cars. I know that at least GM and Ford, on certain models, used a cylinder/valve combination on a manual steering gear. One end of the cylinder was fastened to the frame, and the other end to the tie rod. When the tie rod was moved by the manual steering gear, it actuated a valve in the cylinder to extend or retract the ram until the cylinder was centered. It was power assisted steering, rather than a true power steering. The latest model to use them, that I am aware of, was the Ford Maverick/Mercury Comet. If these are readily available, I would think this would be a very easy installation. Pat

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
