I never did but wish mine did , had to steer with the FEL bucket full . Someone had gotten some Bolens p/s units that seem to be self contained cylinder/ valve together , maybe one of the Bolens guys will jump in ,Al

Al, Can't you run a power steering unit off your main tractor hydraulics?

Guess I could , just didn't figure out how to go about it . Even a p/s box might work .

I think you can tee off the pressure line at the pump, go to the P/S unit and back to the return line. The same way we used to add P/S to the H and M Farmalls
