I am having a really hard time finding a seal kit for a Ford 3000's power steering cylinder. It has a 5/8 inch shaft. According to the parts manual, I need a CAPN3301A or a FP541. Looking at photos of those kits, neither match what I have. has anyone seen this cylinder and knows which seal kit is required? There was a snap ring holding this seal pack in (not shown in photos). I believe this is an OEM power steering system, but now I'm not sure.
I've posted photos here:

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yes, but this web site scales pictures so that yours are more than twice as wide as my monitor (I have a 21 inch monitor) and several screens worth tall, so seeing "the whole picture" is impossible.
It's even worse for folks who only use tablets or phones to access the internet, as their screens are much smaller and there are more and more of those people as time goes on. And there are a few folks (especially in rural areas, which is where a lot of people interested in tractors live) that still use dial up or slow DSL internet connections, and large pictures take a ridiculously long time to load for them.

If you want to show detail then cut and paste that part of the bigger picture into Photoshop or gimp or even MS paint, and then save it as a smaller picture.

Hi Bob. Thanks for your feedback. 800x600 would be far too small to be useful on modern computers. 3200x2400 gives more detail.
As for the seals, I'm just looking for the outer seal set; as typical with this type of repair. I'm not doing a full rebuild. If I were, I would be chucking it on the lathe myself.
Has anyone seen this cylinder before? It really appears OEM to me.

Please learn how to resize photos to 800 X 600 so they can actually be seen.

The OEM cylinders on a 3000 cannot be taken apart without some cutting and welding. That is not an original 3000 power steering cylinder. Take it to a local hydraulics shop and either have them rebuild it or sell you the right seals.
