60 power steering fixed

Posting this for the benefit of anyone who hasn't been into one of these steering systems. First pic is one of the worn pins, I just flipped it and put the worn part into the sleeve. The second pic is the spool valve closed wheels forward. The third is the spool valve position with full right turn and the last is spool valve position with full left turn. After repair and helix slot adjustment, I took these on the workbench. I was curious about the size of the opening with so little helix slot movement. I was surprised at how little the spool valve moves. Didn't measure it, but looks like about 1/16 to 3/32 inch in both directions at the most. The setup is back on the tractor and working great.

As I advised, I would have waited four days and spent two two bucks to be sure, but that is your decision. Again, good luck

Frank, you are a great asset to people asking questions on this forum and I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to respond. Many people grab knowledge off these forums and never bother to try and help anyone. I see you responding to many questions, that takes some serious commitment. God bless ya and if I've offended you I'm sorry but I just can't lose any sleep over losing less than 5% of the pin contact area.

If they work to the center they're going to bottom out in the slots. Those things are soooo tight if they're in the right holes. I wonder if the case you witnessed resulted from someone putting the pins directly across from the correct holes. I can see how gravity might pull them out of those holes. Or maybe they tried to make they're own pins out of a drill bit or something.

Well, good luck on it.

It's not the working out that is as bad as working to the center and locking things up. IMHO.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

My only concern is that I don't like to flip the pins, as they are just a minor press fit as it is, and now that the flats are in the bores, there is less surface area for the press fit to grip. Those pins are critical, and I know of one guy who had a pin fall out and locked the steering to the extreme left or right. Fortunately he was not travelling very fast, but if he had been, he would have probably been tossed of the seat, and maybe under the tractor. I hope you do not experience the same occurence. Part number F1743R, 2 req'd, price is $1.19 at my dealer. That's a $2.38 corner I won't cut.

Yea, they were 1.08 each but I had to wait 4 days and I wanted to get it done. I really had to pound those pins to get them back into the holes. The worn area is less than .200", the sleeve hole is over 1/4" thick. Somebody is going to have to pound them back out if they ever need to be changed again I'm sure.
