Yanmar 186D power steering conversion

Postby donsberg » Thu Dec 10, 2020 4:47 pm

I have Yanmar 186D legal in the US Red Tractor.
Do you have a way to install power steering on it?
The charging system light stays on when running but system is charging 14.2 volts when checking with a meter and the battery doesn’t run down. What could be wrong?

The only option I have right now is below but I think the overall length is too long for the 186D

I have seen other customers adapt a small orbital steering valve and a regular hydraulic cylinder that seemed to work good and replaces the stock steering box.

The charging light is most likely caused by a bad regulator (it is what controls that light) or a bad connection somewhere.
