I have a John Deere 60 and a 70 that I would like to add power steering to and not tie into the hydraulic system on the tractor. Are there kits available that have their own pump and resevior?

You will be happier finding a dime a dozen wrecked 60 or 70 with PS. And just doing a bolt in swap. I dare anybody with an aftermarket PS unit. To steer as well as a factory PS.

Sad part is, junk yard dealers want upwards of 1500-2000 for junky powersteering parts, of which you have to invest another 300 in to get to work correctly.

If the man wants a true powersteering tractor, he should have bought one.

Hey Glen my friend, I ACCEPT THAT DARE LOL Ive owned several A, 60, 70 etc with like a Char Lynn unit up on top spliced into the steering shaft THAT TURNED SWEET N SMOOTH N EVEN N EASY as easy and probably BETTER then several factory units I owned (I used to buy n sell two bangers in the seventies n eighties)

Many had an automotive belt driven pump n reservoir and others, of course, the behlen pump on the governor.

A Factory conversion problem is its NOT just the whole pedestal but the in line PS Hydraulic Pump and those lines n fittings etc etc that need swapped out. PLUS so many of the wiper seals and pins in the pedestal need repaired plus an old hydraulic pump leaks n needs resealed.


But to each their own,,,,,,,,,,

Hope to see you and the family in New York in July

John T

Nancy's dad installed a Behlen unit on "Old John" her 48A.


Hoses connect to unit installed on governor.

Sorry there are no close-up photos.

The best steering tractor we have; much better than factory power factory steering on either of our model 70's.

Take a look at typical right hand turns.

Hope this helps. Audio/Video clip: Turning with Behlen Power Steering

I currently have steering units on them but they are tied into the hydraulics and when I raise the disc all the way up and it deadheads for a second the steering unit leaks. Also it is tough to steer when raising an implement, That's why I would like one that has it's own pump and resevior. I used to have a ford power steering pump on the 60 to run the steering and it worked good but just looked bad.
