POWER STEERING ASSEMBLY - DIY
So how does it work? You cut your existing drag rod (goes from your steering box to the front axle) and attach it to the valve as shown in the diagram. As you turn the steering wheel the drag rod pushes on the valve and extends or retracts the cylinder. As the cylinder moves it changes the location of the valve and either stops the cylinder's movement or moves the cylinder more. It really works nice.
Things You Might Want:
Fitting For Inlet And Outlet Of Cylinder
- HA-33 Adapter as shown in diagram.
- CF-12M Fittings as shown in the diagram
Things You Will Need To Provide:
- Hose (a local hydraulic supply shop can make them while you wait)
- Diverter valve (also called priority valve or adjustable flow valve). This will determine how much oil goes to the steering cylinder and allow you to regulate the speed of the steering. Norther Tool sells them as does ebay and surplus center.
