Ford 3400 power steering pump inquiry

Report to Moderator

I have a 3400 industrial that I just bought. The previous owner took good care of the tractor and informed me of the only problem that he knows of.

The power steering pump leaks, apparently into the timing system (or below it) and eventually power steering fluid ends up in the oil pan.

He said that a dealer said a gasket would fix this. I"ve looked around the web for this gasket but have had no luck.

Has anyone else had this issue? ANy ideas what this could be? How should I go about fixing it? I"ve never done much work on tractors, but know my way around small engines and motor vehicles, so I"m just looking for a little advice here.

Also, if anyone has a loader or backhoe they"d like to sell to fit this tractor, i"d be interested in talking to you about it.

Oil seal on pump drive shaft. Fairly easy to fix once you have the pump off. About 1/2 the ones I've done hadd a groove worn into the shaft and required pump replacement. Other opion that I did on one once was use engine oil in the power steering until I had enough $$ to replace the pump shaft. Just drained the crnacase when it got too full. Best plan is to fix it right but I was 20 and had a demand note at 12% for mid 6 figures so 'make do' was the byline.

Does this seal go inside the pump, or will I see it when I take the seal off. Also, would a pump rebuild kit fix this?

Finally, would a new pump have this seal allready installed? I've seen new pumps for 600$. This pump is bigger than the ones on ford 3000's right?

When the pump is removed from the tractor the seal should be apparent after removing the pump drive gear which meshes into the timing gears. Pump kit should have the seal as should a new pump. $600 seems pricey for something that $50 and 4 hrs has a 50-50 shot of fixing.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
