Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone, I've grown tired of fighting with the manual steering on my Farmall 340, and would like to convert it to power steering. Is it as simple as ordering the power steering components from a salvage yard, and installing them, or is it way more complicated? Presently, I only have the timing gear-mounted hydraulic pump. Will I need to install the larger pump inside the belly of the tractor to make this conversion? Is it simpler to just buy a Char Lynn unit made for an H or M, and custom fit it to what I have? And does anyone have any schematics, parts' listings or diagrams, or "Exploded View" drawings of the Farmall 340 Power Steering? The I&T manual contains every drawing except one of the Farmall 340 power steering... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Cheers.
The wonderful thing about tractors are all the varied jobs they can do. The various attachments they can use. Dad and I changed the 1206 over from fall to spring work. (It took us 44 minutes!) It seemed like an interesting topic to me. What transformations do your tractors make? Let's see some pics!
