Is that power steering original or something home build?  How exactly does it work?

Great timing on this post :thumbs:

 

I bought a PS unit from Rick Show over the winter and I'm going to be putting it on my HT20D shortly.

 

I did find an installation manual on another site.  It wasn't the greatest quality but shoud be good enough I think.

 

Are there any pitfalls I should be aware of?

Hello, no it's a factory unit. The actuating valve and cylinder are together and act as one unit. Where you see the hydraulic hoses going into it , that is the valve it is connected to the steering gear via a drag link (adjustable bar) when you turn the wheel in one direction it strokes the valve letting the fluid flow into the cylinder and allowing it to function turn the wheel opposite direction allows the same function either pulling or pushing the steering arm ,it more or less assists the steering function, but makes a very noticeable difference in the ease of turning the tractor. I like how they look ,hanging there doing their thing ,old school cool

Hey Dave , well this was pretty straightforward because it was a complete swap over , everything was factory off a 23s. Yours will be different without the cooler. I sent Rick pics off a installation I did on a 23 without a cooler where I had to fab the lines, he was going to get them to you, I can email them to you or post them here if you want.

Biggest things; decent 3/8" tubing bender, decent 37 degree flaring tool (you'll have to be able to match up to existing) and flare nut wrenches the old stuff is TIGHT ! Not a lot of room for a wrench it's very easy to round off a nut. You'll need 90 degree 6 JIC x 3/8" sae double male and a 90 degree 6JIC x 6JIC double male to adapt out of pump ,and onto the line coming from lift/remotes valve in the dash , you'll have to make a support bracket as well ( shown in pic #4)
