Just had steering column rebuilt on a 4000, trying to find out the plumbing on the hydraulic line that go to each steering cylinders It was all disconnected when I purchased it. There are four 1/4" lines that connect to the steering valve.

Ok, new power steering pump and rebuilt steering column all hooked up like the pictures posted below. I have the front end of the tractor on jack stands, and the steering wheel turns rotates all the way right and left all on its own and I am unable to hold the steering wheel in the neutral position. Anyone have an Idea what I have done wrong?

It's best to start a new thread for stuff like this and link to the old post.
This thread is over a week old and for us guys who still use modern view no one reads back that far - to page 4 or whatever it's on by now.
That said, who rebuilt the hydraulic block and how do you know if all the plungers are in the right holes?

Do the 1/4" return lines go at the top or bottom of the steering valve?

I don't understand what you're asking.
First of all I'm assuming this is a 4 cylinder 4000 with radius rods and a steering cylinder on both sides. Is that correct?
You should always mention which one you have as there are at least 5 types of PS for a 4000. The 4 cyl, all purpose type like I think you have, the 4 cyl row crop, the early type for a 3 cylinder 4000 all purpose, late type for 3 cyl 4000 AP, the hydrostatic type for a 3 cyl row crop plus a couple of different types for 4000 derivitives - 3550,4400,4500, etc.
Anyway, back to your question; if you can explain yourself better I'm sure we can help you.

What I do is remove the front end of the cylinder from the drag link and hang them on a piece of wire. Then hook the lines up and start the tractor. Watch as you turn the steering wheel to insure that they are going the same direction as the drag link. Takes a bit of concentration to get your head around what is moving where but not too hard.
Never force the steering wheel against the hydraulics. It will break the springs inside the hydraulic block in the column.

I can take some photos of mine tomorrow and try to post them if you don't find a diagram or anything before then.

Are you going to sell the foot pedal linkage for that 4000 4 cylinder?

Today's Featured Article - It's Alright Where It Is! - by Anthony West. I have a tale of a different kind to tell. Whilst rooting in the hedge bottoms this week I had cause to visit Chapel lane Farm, the home of an eccentric gentleman by the name of Austin Kendall. I had heard rumours that an old Case Model C was languishing away in the back of one of the outbuildings there. So off I went in search of what would turn out to be a very rare and unusual tractor. Mr Kendall is an excitable chap to say the least. He is amongst the last of a dying breed of farmer who ... [Read Article]
