About 90% of the time the power steering on my D17 (Series IV) works perfect - you can spin the wheel with finger - the other 10% of the time the power steering goes away and you are arm stronging it. Any input on the problem? Hydraulic oil reservoir is full.

I would assume the power steering (barring leaks) probably has the same oil in it from 1967.[/quote] Exactly !! There is no filter of any kind on the power steering, so it is somewhat important that the oil gets changed once in a decade or so. The Owners manual said every year they wanted the oil changed. if the tractor sits outside in the rain all the time, once a year is still a pretty good suggestion.

When's the last time the power steering oil was changed ????? Takes 5 quarts of Universal hyd fluid (HyTran--HyGard---whatever) and fill port is behind the grille screen and ahead of the radiator. Fill about 1/2" above the gear inside. Overfull will vomit out the excess. Drain plug underneath and just above the right side tie rod. Takes 1 1/8" wrench. There is a splined steering coupler underneath the generator that should have some WD40 sprayed inside of it and work the steering back and forth to lube the splines. Power steering belt has to be fairly tight or it will slip when cold.

Did not know that - I assumed it drew on the tractor reservoir. I will check it out this evening.

I drained the hydraulic system when I bought the tractor - I would assume the power steering (barring leaks) probably has the same oil in it from 1967.

And I just noticed you said "hyd oil reservoir". Did you mean steering reservoir?
