    Default Ford 1841 Power Steering Cylinder and ball joint

    Howdy all, I'm a new member who has a 1959 Ford 1841 Industrial. We recently snapped the ball joint while clearing some brush, and have had no luck in finding a replacement. I believe the part number is 313474. I have attached some photos of both the cylinder and the ball joint in the hopes someone can identify if this bad boy is indeed the original cylinder, or if during the past 50 years, someone has swapped out the original cylinder. Thus far we have not had any luck with either tractor shops or auto parts shops identifying a ball joint that could be substituted for the original, or for the broken part (as seen in the photos.) As an FYI, we had the cylinder rebuilt with a new shaft, so the cylinder itself is good to go, assuming we can find a replacement ball joint.

    I appreciate any assistance you all might be!

    As an aside, I am also interested in finding an old 713 Backhoe attachment to mount on the old girl, and eventually find someone who restores these beauties. She's located near Stillwater, OK.

    Hello,

    We don't have an answer to the ball joint p/n, but we are wondering who you sent the cylinder to be re-built. We have be unable to find rebuild kits for our FORD Industrial 1821 power steering cylinder. We have tried rebuilding the cylinder with O-rings from McMaster Car, but the power steering fluid still leaks out actuator rod/sleeve. Any help would be great. Thank you.

    Here a link to a ball joint
    UF01020 PS Cylinder Front Ball End--Replaces CAPN3300A

    Not sure if it is right as the parts catalog is showing this for the 1841 starting in January of 1961. Chck your serial number.

    Here is a screen shot
