Am in the process of acquiring the necessary parts to add power steering to my LGT 165. I will be purchasing a JD318 steering valve and steering cylinder soon. My question is, I plan on tapping into the tractor lift hydraulics with this. Can someone verify if this valve will work, as well as the overall plan.
wow thanks olcowhand. So, I only need the steering valve and cylinder and some lines and fittings and some brackets welded into place. Also, by "after the valve" you mean it's an open center valve or power beyond? Should i tap in with a T between the valve to filter line? Thanks for the very useful info..
that's good info guy's thanks I've been working out the kinks on the front axle and spindles. I purchased a used axle from our friend Poncho and I have been swapping out spindles, new front wheel bearings(dealership), and made up some new bushings on the front axle center mount.(holes wore out to bigger size) Now that i have the font axle in check and tightened up i will be moving on to the Power Steering setup.
What is the difference between the 4 and 5 hose JD steering valves? Also, which one would be best suited for my needs? Again thanks for all the info and will post pics soon. Ps Joe, i have been a member of your wonderful group for 3-4 months now. thanks again.....
