I have a Ford 3000 with manual steering, can it be changed to power steering? If so, how much could it cost to do this?

Walter,

I just added an aftermarket PS kit (will fit 3000)to my 2600 this weekend. I still have to do a bit more assy before I can try it out. I have heard that these units are OK. I guess my first
impression is the quality of the parts are not
up to that of original Ford equipment. I will
post another follow-up once I have tried it
out for a few hours. I sure hope its worth the
$500+ that I gave for it.

I don't have dollar figures, but if you were to buy all new factory parts, it wouldn't be worth it. Best thing you could do is search the salvage yards for a complete used system. Problem with that idea is two things: one, they generally know what those systems are worth, and two, if the tractor is in a wrecking yard, the steering on it is likely shot!

To do this right you would need the complete steering box, a pump and reservoir, all the associated lines, 2 steering cylinders, different radius rods, etc. Whatever you do, don't fall for any system that simply adds an orbit motor to the column of the existing box for power. Believe me when I say it will not stand up!

Today's Featured Article - Oliver 550 Clutch Overhaul Tips - by Greg Sheppard. I got my 1964 Oliver Model 550 (serial 141-139-519) second-hand and used it for several years before the clutch began to slip. After taking up the pedal linkage several times I saw it was going to take more than that. The engine had been leaking oil at the rear seal and I suspected ... [Read Article]
