I am new to the forum. I have a 1956 420U. I purchased the tractor about 8 months ago. It came with 1/2 power steering. It appears that a previous owner fitted the tractor with power steering. I have had nothing but trouble with the steering since purchasing the tractor. I blew out the fluid diverter this evening when I started the tractor.
What is different about the manual steering gear box verses the power steering box? I tried disconnecting the power steering components, but was unable to steer the tractor.
Will a model M steering box work for conversion back to manual steering? If so, what other parts might I need?
