Hello, I have my eye on a 45 B model. It doesn`t have hydrolics. Can they be added and if so, is it expensive? Also, the steering is very loose, can the steering box be rebuilt or does it need to be replaced? I`ve looked around on the web and cant find any steering parts. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Randall, I tried to return your E-mail but it won't go through. To answer your questions, the B hydraulic pump is mounted on the PTO housing. Some tractors had just PTO and pulley but no pump and the casting is different, can't just add the pump. Roger Vancamp will have the complete unit. He is near Fort Wayne IN and his phone number is 260-747-3445 He also has the sector shafts for your steering box, that usually is what is worn the worst.

The parts peddlers ask around $200 for a PTO unit complete with hydraulics and belt puley. Might find one cheaper if you have the time to look.

Hydraulics can be added to your B. The PTO/Pulley/ Hydraulic pump are replaceable as a unit. Bolts to the rear of the transmission. Just find a donor tractor and swap it. Or depending on what you want to run a front pulley or PTO hydraulic pump might be the way to go. Stock B hyd. doesn't have much volume. Some parts for the steering are available from a local bearing supply and others from Agco.

Hydraulic rear unit can be added "IF you can find it" could be a few $$$. The steering is not as bad to fix. THere is a big worm gear on the end of the steering wheel shaft aht looks like a real course screw. There is a side pawl that looks like a 1/2 inch diameter dowl that sets in the course thread and moves thru an arc as you turn the wheel. The 1/2 inch dowl will look like an arow head when disassembled. you can buy a new dowl and have it pressed or welded into the rocker arm, or you can weld it up and grind it back to position. I did the welding trick and was quite happy with results. You can buy new ball bearings for the ends if needed. I just cleaned mine and they seem o.k. There were a few groves in the shaft where the oil seals fit, so i left the 90wt oil out and packed it full of grease during reassembly. That was a year ago, no problems yet. On the side of the gear box opposite the arm there is a set screw and lock nut. this is used to take out the backlash during overhauls. you can make minor adjustements this way, but dont expect it to work miracles.
