Hi would anyone know if I could swap my 1886 cessna power steering control valve and cylinder assy with one that came off of a HT series tractor? That one is the newer style control valve and cylinder assy. I'm wonder if #1 is it the same overall length and would bolt right in and #2 would my eaton 12 have the proper pressure to run it. I'm asking because my cessna control valve is no good from what I can tell it leaks internally even after replacing the orings. Thank you for any info on this.

 

See my post for some history on this

I put a unit on my 1886 from an HT-20,I had no problems,BUT have been told you need to replace the proportioning valve at the steering tower,I didn't have do it on my 1886 and had no problems,the HT one was a direct bolt on,worked very well

Great to know. I wonder why they told you about the proportioning valve. If yours works then I may pursue that avenue. Thank you for that info I really appreciate it.

Hi Rick I'm guessing that your 1886 already had the complete power steering setup on it and all's you did was swap out the cylinder assy on the side of the tractor? That's what I would like to do if I come across an HT series cylinder assy.

My 1886 didn't have power steering,I added it several years after buying it,I got a HT-20 parts tractor that had power steering,did the change over

 

When you did the change over on your 1886 did you install the reducer and the proportioning block divirter spool? 

 

I'm thinking of adding an HT23 cylinder to another 1886. I know that the 1886 and the cessna needed a diverter spool installed in the proportioning block x up. It also needed a reducer at the the tee near the hydro. 

 

The HT series did not use a diverter spool nor did it use the reducer as far as I can tell.

 

A couple questions:

 

Did the 1886 use the divirter spool and reducer because of the eaton12 or because of the cessna cylinder?

 

Do you think I would need those parts on my 1886 when using the HT23 cylinder or if I could bypass the proportioning block like the HT series do? Currently the 1886 has no power steering whatsoever. Just trying to figure out what I'll need and if I can even find a reducer and the hydraulic lines. Thank you for any help on this.

Not real sure how to answer all this,I put the one on my 1886 a long time ago before I really knew much about them,I didn't change anything,just plumed it in an no problems,but now I have heard you need to change the proportioning valve,I must have just got lucky,mine came off a HT-20

Thank you Rick. I appreciate the info. I'm guessing that you did not plumb in the proportioning block but left it as is. I'll have to look closer at the hydraulic system flow diagrams.
