I have a 1979 ford 4600 that I recently purchased and an hour into brush hogging the steering box gave out. One of the bearings was cracked in half and caused some internal damage (sleeve scratched, see second photo). See attached photos. Is this something that a machine shop can repair? or is this unit scrapped? Any suggestions are appreciated.

I didn't know you had to login separately to the different views. You learn something new every day. I prefer the modern view because just about every other forum on the internet that I frequent uses that style. The classic view hearkens back to dial-up BBS systems and I guess that's why some of you old timers prefer it.

Ultradog, when I look at things in classic view, every one of your posts has a link on the bottom right that says "No Email":



And when I click on that link it displays a page that says the following:

If you change to Modern View (link at top right of the page), Utradog's post has a button at the bottom that says "email". You should be able to click on that and shoot him an email. It comes from the forum and doesn't actually show you his email address or show him yours, so you need top include that in your message.

No, Don't get him started on modern view.
That is a big suck.
Go to Classic view. In the lower right corner of EVERY one of my posts it says send email.
Click that and follow directions.
If you don't know how to get to classic click the link below. That will take you to this thread.

Located in Pacific, MO. But would probably be interested. Is he selling the entire steering assembly? Tried to PM you but it says that function is disabled. If you can PM me I'll shoot you my email

Where are you located?
I know of a steering box from either a late 4000 or 4600 for sale in Brookings, SD. Owner said it worked fine but had started leaking from the top seal. He just replaced it with another one he had. I was going to buy it for a spare but probably won't now.
Price was pretty reasonable - $200?
If you are interested email me and I could put you in touch with him.
Nice fellow. I bought a dead 4600 from him a couple of years ago.

Unfortunately you can not post photos on this forum until you have 10-15 posts

Post requirements helps control spam and advertisement post.

Can't help you have your question, my early model 4000's didn't use that box.

Today's Featured Article - A Belt Pulley? Really Doing Something? - by Chris Pratt. Belt Pulleys! Most of us conjure up a picture of a massive thresher with a wide belt lazily arching to a tractor 35 feet away throwing a cloud of dust, straw and grain, and while nostalgic, not too practical a method of using our tractors. While this may have been the bread and butter of the belt work in the past (since this is what made the money on many farms), the smaller tasks may have been and still can be its real claim to fame. The thresher would bring in the harvest (and income) once a y ... [Read Article]
