Really nice work. One question.  The unit on left shows a cylinder (?) in the steering lever linkage?  Is there somehow Power Steering assist or ??? on that tractor? These are quite large and heavy units, maybe someone decided they needed power steering to be comfortable?  Or, am I just seeing things wrong?

Looking at the pic, I would say it's power steering!

That's actually a hydraulic lift on that Gibson. The steering is operated by the vertical lever to the right if you were sitting in the seat. These Gibsons with the lever steer actually steer very easily with almost no effort.

Yep, the cylinder is attached to the lift that raises and lowers the front blade.

I really like the Wisconsin 2 cylinder engine on that one!
