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.
