Hey Everyone,

 

I have a chance to purchase the power steering components out of an Ariens GT19.  Does anyone know if it will install into my S18H?

 

Also, any idea what I should be paying for this?  The guys said "make and offer".

 

I don't want to be insulting, but I don't want to overpay, either.

 

Thanks.

No, it will not just install on a non power steering tractor. There's more to it than the column and cylinder.
Spindles, lower dash, and a bracket that is welded to the frame rail.
I've paid upwards of $150 just for the spindles and another $150 for the column, probably another $100 for a leaking nonrebuildable cylinder.
Still need to figure out the notch in the dash and the frame bracket. But I now have a gt18 with power steering so I have my patterns.

A bit of work, but worth it. If you can get every thing you need.

whats wrong with the tractor the PS parts are coming off of?  What is to be, with the rest of the parts of that machine?

I could use some stuff for my GT 19.

I am not sure. I asked him why he is parting it out and he didnt respond. I asked because i am trying to decide if I should sell my ariens with a snowblower and 3pt hitch and my simplicity 7116 with mower, snowblower tiler and vacuum to get a tractor with a mower and loader, or try building a loader for the ariens and add power steering. Just not sure which way i want to go.

see if you can get the GT 19 and do the opposite... make "it" whole, from parts that are on your GT18?

What he said...and you will also need the lift valve assembly with the extra port for the power steering.  You may be able to work around that, but you will need the lift valve to make it "stock".  I personally would install the proper lift valve just to keep it stock/simple for servicing purposes.
