I think the best way to add PS to an NAA is to find one off of a 600/800 or 4 cylinder 2000/4000. All will be a direct swap onto his tractor. It does require a bunch of parts so you probably want to buy a complete package and not try to buy everything piecemeal. Going rate for a complete system is in the $1K range plus install.
Yes, there have been posts about installing an electric PS unit off of a car onto an 8N. I personally am not impressed by them. To begin with you have to chop up your dash and hood so badly to graft the unit onto the tractor.
Worse though is they apply the power in the wrong location. Except for some later steering systems All the Ford PS systems apply the power assist IN FRONT OF the steering box. The electric add on applies it BEHIND the steering box.
The result is like having a 400 lb man ham handing the steering wheel and will cause early failure in all of the steering box componants.
A hydrostatic system like Royse added to his tractor is a good, viable option too but there isn't a "kit" for it so you'd pretty much need to design/build the system and source your own parts - all of which might cost the old gentleman more than a used OEM system would.
