Ford 4200 Row Crop Power Steering Hose's

Report to Moderator

I have a 1971 Ford 4200 Row Crop with a 3 Cylinder gas engine.

The power steering cylinders are mounted under the radiator.

There is a manifold mounted between the 2 cyls. and 2 short lines going to each cyl.. The line is about 6 inches plus the ends makes it 9 1/4 inches long. The problem is that Ford discontinued these

lines. But what's worse is they used some odd fittings.

I have been to the top 3 hydraulic repair places in my area and

nobody can get these fittings to make me a new hose. If anybody
has any info on this and or what options I have I would appreciate

I am in the process of cutting the old hoes out of these fittings and I am either going to try and crimp a new hose on them or braise a steel line to them. It is just unbelievable that nobody has this type of fittings

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I have been to three New Holland dealers do all make hoses and I have been to three different Hydraulics shop and nobody has these fittings. I also have talked to two different tractor salvage places and they don't have any hoses and they are checking with their distributors to see if they could mirror this part and so far nobody has been able to

will be facing this shortly but have not begun removing those lines.
It looks to me like the fittings going into the manifold are very similar to a typical banjo fitting that Ford used on their remote hydraulic valves so those may be obtainable.
The fittings that go into the manifold look like the ones I found on a 4400 steering cylinder and should have an Oring inside to make the seal. Those orings were still available from the dealer. On anything where parts are no longer available you (we) may have to get creative. Perhaps you can cut the hose crimps off and replace them with a different style hose and crimp. It may require you to silver solder a modern fitting onto the old fitting or even have a machine shop drill and tap the orifices to accept an NPT fitting.
This is only an 1100 psi system so taking some risks is acceptable.
I will be dealing with this at some point myself and am confident there is a way even if it requires some thinking outside of the box.
It may be springtime before I dig into mine though.
You can email me using the "send email" at the bottom of this post if you would like to collaborate on this.

Check your local New Holland dealer if you have one. New Holland owns the legacy of the Ford Tractor brand in terms of parts. My local New Holland dealer has the ability to make hydraulic hoses and they have some of the oddball fittings that Ford used where no other hydraulic shop in the area has them.
