WD45; power steering and brakes

I've found a WD45 (gas, wide front) but it doesn't have power steering. How difficult is it to add power steering to it? Also the left brake seems to be non-existent. Is it difficult to fix for someone who is mechanically challenged?

Removing the pins that hold the bands in place can be a pain- check the archives for advice- lots of things work. They have likely been siting for many years. The left brake- first thing is to remove the brake cover and try to adjust the lining- tighten up the bolt with a 3/4 inch wrench. Inspect the lining- if it's gone- then you need to replace it, and you'll need to pull the stubborn pin. As far as power steering, sometimes the toughest thing is to cough up about $400 for the unit!

I can't comment on the power steering. But I bought a WD 45 last week with no brakes and am trying to replace the linings, what shuould be a simple job is a PITA because of stuck pins holding the brake shoes in at the bottom. But I will get em loos eventually.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
