Jim Gerhardson’s ’56 Ford 850

Hey Roland, I am finished with the power steering unit and absolutely love it!!! Used the ’86 Chevy power steering pump and standard hoses from Fleet Farm. I did have to have one hose made at our John Deere Dealer for the pressure line from the pump to the control unit but besides that, everything was very easy and simple to do. I painted the kit besides the hoses and is barely noticeable as an aftermarket unit. I appreciate all the help and look forward to getting some work done around the farmstead. I am the 4th generation to have this tractor since it was new. My great grandfather owned the Ford Implement Dealership in Paynesville, MN and took this tractor straight off the trailer and into his personal shop. My grandfather used the tractor to farm. My father used it logging in college to build his log cabin in Northern Minnesota and originally I used the tractor to start my landscaping company in Fargo, ND. It was the only piece of equipment I had. After 6 years, it was time to retire her from landscaping (I have skid steers for that now) and restore it. All in all I am very happy and can’t believe I waited so long to do this.
