Dennis! I have a 300U that I put power steering on. As previously posted there are several parts that you will need. The steering gear box contains the sensor and hydraulic assist unit. The Steering gear box is the same for the 300,350 and 460 and maybe later utility tractors use the same unit. The one that I used was off a 460 utility. The hydrotouch regulator valve off any IH 300/350 Utility or 300 through 450 farmall with power steering are the same. It also makes a difference if you have one hydrotouch valve or three. If you don't have a hydrotouch manuel or a parts manuel then you should get one. These two manuels show you everything you need to know when converting from manuel to power steering. If you have anymore questions post another request for help.

I have a 1955 300U. I recently priced a power steering setup from Bates Corp. At $1250 for the parts, I dont think it will happen real soon. This was for a used unit, which will probably need some repair? I would rather look for another way - I talked to a guy at the Mid Michigan old gas tractors show a couple of years ago that had put a 450 unit in. He said he had to do some grinding to get it to fit. Good luck! Irv

Power steering was an option on the 300U. If you can find the parts, and there's the trick, you will need the following. 1. Power steering gearbox, containing the valving and actuator, off a 300U or 350U
2. Hydraulic regulator/flow control valve off a power steering equipped 300U or 350U. This valve has a priority valve in it that non-power steering tractors didn't have. It directs priority flow to the steering.
3. Hoses to hook it all up.

My guess would be that you are probably looking at $500-1000 to convert it.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
