I'm purchasing a M that does not have power steering. It's going underneath a 2MH picker and I'd like to add a Char-Lynn torque generator to it. I've seen several posts about adapting different power steering pumps to run the torque generator, can anyone provide some NAPA numbers for these units? I'm most interested in the 50s era Cadillac pumps but the ones I find new online are pretty spendy. I'd like to set it up like the pic.

thanks,
Al

Go to an auto junkyard and buy something similar.Doesn't have to be a perfect 'match'.

the napa number for that pump is NSP846551. it fits a 64 ford mustang. it does not come with the resevoir. there is a filter that fits in the resevoir, that is napa part number 1653. the pump uses the old type A transmission fluid.

The one bad thing about your plan...

I have Char Lynn power steering on my M and it's the best thing since sliced bread. I put all new seals in the pump and torque motor when I put the tractor in service years ago. There aren't any leaks. Good thing - the hood has to come off to check the fluid with the reservoir up there. That might be a real main with a mounted picker.

Make sure you have a tight system. Taking off the muffler and climbing over that picker will get old really fast.

Couldn't you run the torque motor off the belly pump?

Belly pump is not live, so no power steering unless the clutch is not depressed.

I'm aware of that. So you need it to be live then.
