Originally, I thought the Char-lynn torque generator was mounted backwards on this tractor:



It's mounted facing the correct way. The difference is, it has TWO NOSES.

Normal char-lynn units have a smaller diameter nose on the output end of the motor, like this:



Mine has the same tapered section on BOTH ends of the unit. I've never seen one like it.

What tractors would have had the aftermarket power steering up at the steering wheel like this?

probably came off a fork lift. char-lynn made different style torque generators for many applications.

The JD 60 Dad bought from a JD dealer in Elkader, Ia and had a Char-Lynn unit mounted, used the cast iron dash/steering pedistal as the mount. Then they installed a Saginaw pump with an integral reservoir, much like a '55 Olds I had. Made for a good hand warmer when picking corn in cold weather and a neighbor that had a factory ps 60 said ours worked better than his. Some time after I left home, Dad sold it to his brother and when i saw it later, the supply for the ps was plumbed to the tractor hydraulics... said the Saginaw went south.
My 240U has a bracket on the left side of the engine and there is a section of the steering shaft cut out there between a couple of bushings.

Thanks for the ideas.

This thing works GREAT. It's the best steering M/400/450 I've ever had the pleasure to drive.
