I just got a power assist steeering system from a old style ford f250. I tried a serch for power assist and found nothing. Has any one out there installed somthing like this or herd about it. thanks for the help.
I thied that and all I got was a full power steering system. This is just a hydrolic cyl that mounts to the axle and then there is a valve that works with the pitman are. Can't seem to find anyone that has done this before.
I would skip the f-250 hyd assist, even ford people admit it wasn't such a good idea, works on tractors though, my dad's international uses the same setup. The ford one works ok when it's farily new, but they dropped it for a reason, it has a lot of slop built into it to make the valve work, and they tend to leak, like a lot of cylinders with poor seal methods.
if you want hyd steering, go to a ported box, or if you think about it the char-lynn steering valve isn't unreasonably expensive from a shop that deals with char-lynn eaton direct. I sold one for $260, then all you need is a cylinder, $60-70 for a cross unit that will last forever in that application, but doesn't look as cool as the double ended units, and some hoses. a bigger resevoir would be a big help, but if it's a trail rig, you might get away with just installing a large cooler in the return line to add volume. or a piece of 4" pipe down low. or a junkyard steering box.
