Power steering to manual

I have a 65 4000 3 cylinder and the power steering cylinder is leaking bad! I did a reseal but the shaft seems to be bent. When I steer to the right it blows out the seals. I am restoring it and the PS system always leaked out of the external reservoir and I sealed it up. When I redid the seals I noticed that if it turned the shaft it had a lot of resistance in certain spots, this leads me to the conclusion that it is bent. I bought the tractor used and do not know the history. I want to convert to manual steering. My issue is now that it seems to be unique. The dealer shows the cylinder being a 4100 and the rear drag link is 41 1/8 long and 5/8" thread. Most 4000 before 1970 are 1/2" I think the c7NN3307A rear drag link will work but want to confirm. My pump is leaking also. I will just continue to use it without any fluid but worry about the pump causing issues if I do not remove it and go back to manual steering. Any thoughts?

I am a big fan of PS and would likely go to great lengths to add it or keep it.
But if it's not a big deal to you then do away with it. If I were to go that route I would just buy the tie rod ends and weld them on to a piece of 3/4" schedule 80 pipe. I would also go to a bone yard and buy the little cover plate that replaces the pump and eliminate that too.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
