  1. Rebuilding steering valve JD 318

    So the recently resurrected John Deere 318 has been home a few weeks now, and overall I’m pleased with how it’s doin. However, the other day while hauling firewood into the basement, I noticed that it was leaking hydraulic fluid from under the steering wheel. A little searching online lead me to the conclusion that one or more seals in the Parker steering valve had shot its wad. I’ve got the thing out, which wasn’t too bad, just not much extra room there. (Now I gotta tell you, the folks over on the green forums must not have to deal with very complex mechanical problems very often. They made removal of the valve from the tractor sound about on the same level of difficulty as rebuild a engine at night with no flashlight and only a crescent wrench to work with! But I digress...) Anyway, any of you ever replaced the seals in one of these Parker units? Looks like Deere is the only place with the seal kit. Anyway, any tips for me? It’s a good cold day project, especially where I’ve got it parked!
