    Default Power Steering Conversion kits

    Has anyone had any experience with the kits advertised in the classified section on the <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.yesterdaystractors.com/cgi-bin/clasquery.pl>YTMags board</A>? There were no pictures on the company web site for using the conversion on a Ferguson 35 or MF 135 (my interest) so I e-mailed the company. This is what they said

    I am interested in opinions/experieinces from any TBNrs who know about doing such a conversion -
    Does the mechanical part make sense?
    Does the price make sense? (I know it is only a couple of bucks in US funds - [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]).

    Are there other options for adding power steering to a Ferguson 35 or a MF 35 tractor?

    Thanks

    well the price sounds a lot better than what i was quoted for a kit for my JD 1020; $600 U.S. dollars, and the information was sketchy at the best, so i opted to pass..i figure if they want to sell something like that, a little more information would help. i will get the name of the company i got the price from later and send it along, seems like they are located in Iowa, i know the part number was a JD100.
    the e-mail is sales@aiproducts.com the name of the company is a&amp;i products; i'd be real interested in how it works/installs: if you get the kit from either one

    Did you happen to notice the manufacturer is in Turkey? I spent some time there and was not real impressed with their mechanical stuff. Also, the shipping by boat method looks a little unusual.
