Looking at putting a power steering unit on my 1512.    I have pulled and rebuilt the power steering on a super cub.  Are there other units that will fit in the 1512 or does it have to come from another cub?  I know a JD cylinder will fit OK.

Will sure keep that in mind.  Haven't rounded up any of the components as yet.

 

Sorry for the double post - don't know what happened.  Mod can delete the first one if they want/would.

There was a guy that did one on OCC on an 1811 that should be pretty much the same. He did have a few minor issues.  I guess you can't post a link to another site or I would.

You go ahead and post that link, Oak. Totally within the rules to link outside if the info can't be found here.

I have gave up completely on OCC.  Can never get signed in.  Have set up 3 different accounts.  All been approved but none will let me sign in so gave it up as a bad venture.

 

Thanks for that link Kenny.  I FINALLY got far enough to read all the posts but could not open any pictures.  I think that may be more of a project than what I want to get in to.   Not that big a deal to steer it with a knob on the wheel.  If I have to will hang a couple hundred lbs off the back a ways to lighten up the front end a little. :thumbs:

Must be something on your end cause I have no issue over on OCC.

Been a long time since i've posted, I've been gathering parts for a year to add power steering to my 1512. I am using a JD 300 series column. The steering cylinder and mounts and knuckle from an 1864. As for mounting the JD column in the Cub a member over on OCC sent me detailed pictures of how he did is and i am doing it in the same way. My only recommendation if you plan on doing this is to convert to a CV style drive shaft and it free's up room near the column.  When i get my tax return i am going to get the adapters made and my CV shaft shortened and i'm going to do the CV shaft conversion and convert to PS in one shot.
