Hi All....a few weeks back I posted that I had purchased a Ford 600 with a down pressure loader and a pristine Sherman backhoe......got it for 1300..... It was not running......it is now.......carb issues and a botched 12 volt conversion......like the old adage ....like a sewing machine now!!!!!.....I knew it was gonna be hard to steer......but oh my!!!!......Anyone know of an after market power steering kit that would work on a 600 with a loader????

Don't make the mistake I made. I bought a worn out 4000 4 cyl with a bad pump and decided to save a few bucks and go to an auto salvage yard for a pump. Found one from a Ford Pinto and built a bracket and all.

Problem is you have 2 cylinders on the tractor and the Pinto only had one. Slower than molasses to the point where I just took the thing off. Stay with tractor parts with adequate gpms.

I've seen the complete systems go for as high as $1200. $600-800 seem about right to me. The hard part is find one for sale.

It ran me $650 for the used parts and another $350 for hoses and the springs. Call it $1000.

I did the PS conversion on my 660 with an original system. The donor was a 651 with an Eaton pump. It went smoothly except for a broken spring in the valve inside the steering gear. Just make sure you get all the parts. Steering gear, pump, pump bracket, adjustment pin, t-stat housing, both cylinders, both radius rods. both drag links, all tubes and fitting.

Well worth the cost and labor. Makes my 660 a dream to drive.

8XX, 6xx and naa and 2000/4000 4cyl ag models should all be able to be fit up witht he same ps setup.

note that the thermostat cap / top tube from the head has to be changed on a early unit without ps as it is an anchor point.. IE.. an naa would need a new neck..e tc..

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
