replacing power steering with solid shafts?

Post by stew1944 » Wed Jun 27, 2018 5:47 pm

I have the power steering cylinders on my 350B, but have no pump or reservoir on the dozer. My question, should I leave them be or change them out for the solid shafts? There is a hodgepoge of pipes under the seat that I'm sure don't have any use. I'm not sure if it is safe to tear them out or not.

I would think that it will steer a little odd with the empty cylinders, but could be wrong.
