I've run into a similar problem with the repower on my MF7 with the 9 hp Tecumseh OHV. I'm thinking of moving the battery to the front of the engine compartment so I can put a fuel tank where the battery used to go. I wish I had a TIG setup as it would be easier to build a tank than it has been to find something that will fit.

The 3rd addition was power steering. I bought a PS Valve body with short column and welded in bracket to hold it. Was a challenge getting hose routing inside the narrow MF14 dash. The cylinder I used for the steering is the mid mount mower lift cylinder from the MF14. I lathed a new cylinder body end cap & fitted an eye joint to it, and on shaft end simply screwed on a heim joint. At first I retained the bell crank under the engine, but having too many joints created too much play in the system, so I added a bracket in front of the axle beam so I could connect cylinder direct to the spindle control arm.

What did the Steering Wheel and valve cost you? I want to put power steering in whatever tractor I abuild a loader for, but the prices I've seen tend to hit close to half a G-note.

That was several years ago & my memory fades. But I think I gave around $100 for the steering valve with stub column & wheel, then about $50 for the cylinder. Today the prices can get lots higher though.
