Re: power assisted, power, hydrostatic, and hydraulic steering??
The Large Frame Bolens power steering was a cylinder (with internal valving) that replaced the the drag link from the steering sector to the front tie rod. It was plumbed into the hydraulics off the hydro. It is actually a pretty clever set-up, but I am not aware of any other makes that used the same cylinder in the same way. You might ask someone like Samsbolens. I know he has routinely tried to track down original manufacturers for things so he could offer them for sale to the Bolens freaks.
