Can you get to JDparts.com? I found different part numbers there for the power steering cylinder, and if you search for the part numbers using the "Part Number Quick Search" function, then scroll down when you get to the part, it gives you info on the cylinder in a table. For example, for Part number AM39310, it gives the following
English Metric Specification Weight: 7.21 LBS 3.27 Kg Bore Diameter 2.000 IN Rod Diameter 0.750 IN Stroke 4.500 IN Closed Length 16.750 IN End Type-Rod & Cap 0101 Rod End Size 0.638 IN Cap End Size 0.638 IN Working Pressure 850.000 PSI Finish K Note S
There are a number of different part numbers, but I didn't look all of them up and don't know if the info is different.
Hope this helps.

Measure your total tie rod movement distance over the L to R steering range. Your cylinder's stroke should be a bit more to allow for wear and adjustment. Otherwise- What Harlan said..

Thanks for the information. 4.5" is exactly the stroke I need. I certainly appreciate the information and the quick answers.
