    Default F16D power steering

    I have read a few post that referenced F16D tractors with power steering. I would like to get the part numbers for this kit or what you used if it was home built. Pictures would be much appreciated! I have discovered that the manual steering on this tractor is a serious weak point when a FEL is mounted. I have rebuilt it twice; once when the top of the screw broke off where the steering shaft pins on and then once right after I put a new one in and I was turn while at a stop with a full bucket. I think a good power steering unit would solve all of my problems.

    I appreciate any help you can provide on this!

    Am I missing something, or does that make NO sense?

    Maybe Aaron will be along with the explanation cause I don't have it.

    "Select One:

    The power steering kits are built on the actual tractor. The manufacturer of the kit has Koyker loaders there on site and they know how the kit will fit with that brand loader (they both share some common bracket locations). They do not have any of the other 42,000 (+/- ) different brands of loaders there and they do not know how any of those loaders will interfere with the kit.

    So we offer three options-
    1)- You plan to install with a Koyker loader and you will get all of the brackets ready to make the kit fit with your loader.
    2)- You tell us that you do not have a loader and you will get all of the brackets to bolt to your bare tractor frame. If you have a non-Koyker loader then you will be required to modify/fabricate the brackets to make it work with your loader.
    3)- You can get the generic kit which will have zero brackets or tie rod pieces ( just a cylinder, valve, and hoses).

    We do this because walking a customer step by step through modifying a bracket to fit XYZ brand loaders is simply too difficult to do over the phone.

    I have updated the listing to better explain this.

    Much better, as previously worded, "generic" was not an option.

    Thanks for the information guys! I'll have to save my pennies to buy it. It's a little more than I thought!

    I followed up on this, and the people I talked to did not feel that the power steering they have will fit an F16D. They didn't have one to measure it for, maybe? If I were to get the measurements that they need, could the fab one up? Rebuilding the steering is getting expensive!

    I use the bucket the most, so a reliable steering system is of utmost importance. I've looked in my area (Central NY - Syracuse) for people who would do this fab work, but I've come up empty. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for either. The local JD dealers are absolutely useless, they won't even have a conversation about it. You'd think they'd want to try and sell some parts, at least.

    Any help is appreciated!

    I think that's the right answer. Find somebody who builds cars a a hobby, doesn't matter which specialty. Dirt-track racer, Jeeps, old hot rods, maybe snowmobile or motorcycle racer or something. Somebody who can look at what is, and can imagine what could be. Then he gets out the torch and arc welder and gets to work, probably without blueprints. Maybe start by asking in a jeep or motorcycle shop for the best fabricator in town. I think you will need to step outside the world of tractors for this.
