I can not find any replacement power steering hoses (right front) now mine has blown. Have checked everywhere, everywhere I know, they are no longer avail;able thru ford, and those folks who make replacement hoses say they can not obtain the fittings. Anyone know where I could obtain them from. Without them, my tractor is just a big door stop. Thanks so much, Marc

anny chance you could weld or braze the ends onto some standard fitting and then couple it up with standard off the shelf lines as a stopgap soloution. BTDT.. all depends on what you got to work with.

post a pic of the hose ends.

My 73 4000 has the power steering internal to the steering column, so I don't have external left and right hand cylinders, but my parts manual shows both kinds of systems. It looks like the replacements may still be available, but the new replacement is actually 2 parts and you have to order both. The replacements for the right hand front hydraulic line should be part number C5NN3N555B plus part number 86546146. Check a New Holland dealer to see if they can still get these part numbers.

If you're talking about a 4000 AP with an intergral power assist setup... then just buy some steel tubing and flare up some new lines. It might take some practice if you're not familiar with flaring, but you'll get it. Make sure you double flare them.
If you also need to buy a flaring kit, don't buy a cheap one. Those are OK for copper... but they will not hold the steel line for the double flare. Get a good Weatherhead kit or something similar. Probably going to cost you a hundred bucks or more.
Also remember to buy the line clips for the new line once you get it set in place or the vibration will break the new line off at the flares...

I'd like to know more about what type of 4000 you have. I'm thinking unless you have something exotic like a 4300 or something, lines are available for your tractor.

I kinda though they were too... but I know the price would make you faint.
