Dealer said it can't be done. So I installed power steering on Ariens 18 hp tractor. Use 14 or 16 inch Hd steering columns ,generic steering valve and piston from a cub cadet. Feed hydraulics in series from deck lift valve. A cutting torch removes manual steering nicely. A flat metal bar under the frame is perfect for steering piston anchor. Disk brakes never worked. Used brake foot lever to make a rocker clutch that stops and reverses better than brakes ever did. Also lever control covers - I- 45degree the square corners for smooth lever action
