    Default Power steering options for my 1953 Ford Jubilee

    Greetings, I'm brand new to the forum.
    I'm looking for assistance finding options for adding power steering to my 1953 Ford Jubilee tractor.
    I spoke to a parts dealer and he said I may want to explore a kit for a Ford 800 (said they were very simiar?).
    If I can find a kit, I can install it. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Welcome aboard Wingman56.

    If you can't get help here, there is another site called Antique Tractors - Yesterday's Tractors : Antique Tractor Headquarters.
    Also these guys are sponsers here. Tractor power steering conversion kit and parts store. I've never used them, but you could email or call and see what they tell you. I've chatted with a few people who have delt with them and they seem pretty reputable.

    Good thing I was sitting down.. I just went to Waltstractors and they have kit for the Jubilee. Cha-Ching.. Good luck.

    I think I've seen the "Cha-ching" kit.

    If I were adding power steering to and older tractor, I'd start with an early GM-style control valve that goes on the steering linkage, not inside the steering box. The steering box is the money part and there's no point in duplicating it just to get a valve that senses when you're trying to steer. The hydraulic cylinder would assist on one side of your push-pull Ford steering. The valve would be connected at one of the Pitman arms - the valve travels back and forth, sensing when the system is pushing or pulling. The Jubilee has small internal hydraulics, but enough flow to operate assisted steering. I'll bet you could line up the parts you need for a couple hundred bucks. Then you'd need somebody handy in making up the small adapters and shortening the pitman, etc. There is probably someone in the Ford community who can tell you how to get "power beyond" performance from the Jubilee's internal hydraulics without having to restrain the 3-point hitch arms.

    cha-ching kit and it says it cant be used with a loader. My jubilee steers like a tank. ( I take that back) I was on tanks when I was in the Army. They were much easier to steer. Do you think power assisted steering would help?
