  • new 8n power steering kit
  • if anyone is interested i recently purchased the new power steering kit for the n series with a loader. so if your thinking about upgrading your tractor here is my review. first is the price. i paid $499 plus shipping ($16). this is the lowest priced kit ive ever seen for power steering for anything, so thumbs up there. then came the installation. it was advertised as a hour to install with basic tools. i found this estimate to be very accurate. i used just a few tools and the instructions were very simple. the hardest part was removing the steering pitman arms on my tractor, but like you would expect time had really got em stuck on. the appearance is most impressive as well. after removing a few steering parts and replacing them with the supplied kit parts i was impressed at how the kit did not detract from my vintage look of my 8n. in fact the kit has something of a factory look that blended remarkably well with the vintage look of the n and ive had to point it out twice now. with all parts powder coated in the correct ford red. i also would like to note the advertised claim of no modifications to the tractor, allowing it to be converted back to its original state if you save your original parts. now to the important part, how well does it work? fan-friggin-tastic! with a full bucket i rolled around my property with ease. literally driving with one hand! now they do make a kit for a non loader tractor but its a bit more in price i think, and i saw that similar kits are coming for the jubilee and a few other vintage models as well. so there it is, my glowing review of the best aftermarket upgrade to the 8n ive personally ever used. without a doubt the best 500 bucks ive ever spent. who ever came up with this kit is a true genius. now due to much higher than expected interest im told the kits went on back order within a few weeks but should be available again very soon. for more info send me a message and ill send you contact info. stay tuned for more reviews, as ive also located a engine kit advertised to increase output by 10hp without modifying the engine in any way that would be irreversible. cant wait til it arrives. thanks for reading.

  • I guess if the installation does not effect the integrity of the tractor, pictures won't be doing much good.

  • If they have a power steering kit that works for $500 they will probably stay back ordered.Do you have a picture you could post?

  • My grandkids embarrass me with all their electronic knowledge and how limited I am. I really believe God has given them an extra gene for that cause they seem to know instinctively from infancy how to do those things.
