4 pieces?
Ole500
@mdoornekamp yes, 2 on each side 😉

Ok. a lot of oil necessary for steering. Or a lot of turns of de steering wheel

@mdoornekamp I have done some calculations and I should steer like a normal tractor, it will be around 13 turns lock to lock, just hoping it is not to sensitive, but guess I wont find out before all the hydraulic components are complete 😅

@mdoornekamp it does look a bit obsolete, a Massey Ferguson 1200 has 1 cilinder(slightly thicker) and turns without a problem. I think the weight is about the same as a doe.

@Arie_MF this thing turns nearly 90° and the reason for 2 cylinders on each side is to get the sylinder to "go around the corner" when at full turn, on the later models they did try with one sylinder on each side, but it caused alot of load on the power steering pump, resulting in pumpfailure

Very nice project. Have you taken the measurements of the original doe of is it your own design?
Have these 6 cilinder conversions been made by doe?
Ole500
@Krispax Hi, thank you, No I have not been able to get the measurements of an original one, so this is just made out of what I have been able to find of litterature and photos, the big parts was easy enough, but it is all those small details that causes the big thinking.
No, they never offered a conversion with one or 2 six cylinders 😉
