ford 555 steering valve removal

eric I am having trouble getting the steering valve on the column out. Got all line unhooked,4 bolts out of top.and sqeeze clamps off column.Still cant get valve to come out.Does steering wheel have to come off of shaft.
franny HI Eric, I'm sorry that I don't have an answer to your question,but I wonder if you had the same problem I'm having now with my 1981 555 2wd. When the engine's not running, the steering wheel is very hard to turn, as it should be. However, if you have a front bucket full of material, the tractor's steering wheel cannot control the front wheels very well, and the steering wheel can be turned arounrd and around, and the tractor kind of goes where it wants to. If the bucket is empty, it's somewhat manageable. Was that the trouble you were having with yours? If it was, I'll rip/tear into mine and let you know what I find. I have not been able to find anyone with knowledge on this. Thanks, Franny
Josh I'm having the same problem as franny on my 555. When the bucket is full, the steering is almost useless, and I have to steer by braking. With no load in the bucket, it drifts considerably, but can be controlled with constant steering wheel correction. Did you ever find information?
Elder You must remove the seeering wheel. There is a pin that connects the shaft with the pump. The pumb will not come out unless you remove that pin. The pin is secured with a large pressure ring then you just push/drive the pin out. That pump is rather heavy so be ready.
God Bless,
Elder
