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.

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
