Hello, Thank You for all of your help..... I have a 1960 D-17 that has a power steering issue. When you start the tractor the steering wheel will jump (rotate) about half a turn or more to the left on its own. When driving it feels like it has dead spots in it. I am sure it is a pressure problem. Could someone help me locaste the particular area that is bad? I purchased a used steering unit off of e-bay and would like to just change the part that is bad instead of the whole casting. Any ideas? THanks, Victorian Farms

Sounds like a problem in the control valve.
There is an adjusting nut that if comes loose will make the wheels turn without turning the steering wheel.
Part 79.
All o-rings can be bought from AGCO.
Be sure to get the new gasket between the valve and the casting.
Not a fun job. You have to remove the whole front end of the tractor. Not enough room to remove the control third party imagevalve.
