    What happened to the cylinder? Not repairable?

    well for one it don't appear to be re-sealable (welded shut) for 2 it turns much sharper one direction than the other and for 3 it appears to be leaking thru the casting around the seal and not the actual seal! So i assume i'm looking for a replacement?

    Unfortunately JD uses welded cylinders on a lot of smaller tractors, and they are "non-standard" forcing you to buy a replacement from them. My only suggestion would be to find a local shop and see what they can do for you.

    I'd prolly do that too.
    Thought you might find one on eBay from someone parting out a 4xx. Didn't see any listed now, but some different sellers look like they have some parts and might be worth a contact or two.

    There is no "I" in team, but there is a "Me" if you want to jumble it up a bit...

Also there are not several as this is the only one i found that was even close! There have been several in recent history that have sold though, perhaps I should mow with the big ole kubota until one can be located reasonably?

    The 420 is a different frame tractor from the 425, 445, and 455. I would be very suspect of a 420 steering cylinder for your 445. Among the 445's are the AWS that likely take a different steering cylinder. Ask for the measurements, as it might be easy for a seller to say yes and then the "not-so-much-fun" would begin.

    They are repairable with a lathe and the proper welding equipment (TIG)

    The butt plate needs to be machined apart (opposite side of the rod)....then rebuild, reweld and test.....Done......

    They take standard seals internally.....
