I found the bolt length sizes for the power steering housing on my 830 listed on case IH site parts breakdown. But one of the 6 bolts is 1/4" longer than the other 5, can you help me out with where the longer bolt is installed?

Thanks Again!

Thanks for the additional info Gene. I just drove it 2 miles down the gravel road to the gas station to fill the tank, it steers like a dream now, no play at all like I had previously...my first tractor, so it's my first Case and I love it.

Take care,

Hi Gene, I found my info on case IH parts breakdown. Funny thing is, I bought the different size and somehow got confused in the matter and thought that the different bolt was longer instead of shorter. After getting 4 of the bolts in (2 1/2" length), I come to the 5th and it stops 1/4" short and is tight. So I put the shorter bolt in that hole (the short bolt on the 830 goes in the hole midline in the rear) and all is well except that I could not get the 6th bolt in at the very front. So the 830 takes 5- 2 1/2" and 1- 2 1/4" bolt. Where the wide front end attaches to the center of the front of the tractor, well that assembly is in the way and will not allow for me to fit the bolt into the hole. Looks like I will have to drop the front end about 3/4"-1" to get that bolt in. For now I will be happy with the 5 installed.

Thanks again for your time.

You will be fine with only 5 bolts. This is built extra heavy for the narrow front that bolts where your steeering arm is bolted. Very little stress other than to prevent rotation with wide front... Gene

Just pulled a 400 unit apart and also checked my 700 parts manual and only come up with one length bolt. That is 2 1/4 for all of them. If the 830 is different, I have no information on that. The 2 1/4 bolts will work fine in all locations.

Parts book for 730/830 shows all 2 1/4" with manual steering, and 5-2 1/2" and 1-2 1/4" for power steering. Lee

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
