These are the two sheets that come with the wiring harness and ele doodads to out smart the steering assy into thinking it's still on the original vehicle.

I'll take pics of the harness assy itself tonight after work.

edit: all in all, the instructions seem simple and concise leaving me to believe that it will be me to cause any problems with it's installations.

Of course, he does offer to be available should any problems crop up.

From this I assume you found an adapter kit, to hook this thing together without the car computers. Looks like the fix for my old quad too.

Something you designed? Or something like I bought? Just curious as I have another two to do like this first one.

I have the ele steering assy's, having bought 3 at the same time of the same type and year. The only specific need I knew of was that the steering unit must have a metal case for the controller box on the unit itself for this particular harness assy from Portugal to work.

There are a total of 12 Farmall SA's and A's around my little farm location. Having talked with these guys and gals, they too would also like this addition added to their tractors for the same reasons.

Having this unit installed will most definitely make backing up to attach tools etc much easier as the ground speed of the tractor is small making steering harder to accomplish.

It is a Honda Foreman ES, my wife thinks it's hers. As the bloody thing has no 4wd disconnect it is a bastard to steer in tight quarters.

Where did you get the wiring adapter kit from?

Sry Gerry, I read your preceding posts without my glasses and misunderstood.

Your wanting to fix the ill steering on your quad. I'm up to speed now. lol

I'm going to try and open that smallish plastic box with the two plastic studs holding it closed to see what is inside.

That little added plastic box he calls "The Controller" will be the heart of what cheats the steering assy into thinking it's on a vehicle.

I'm thinking a little reverse engineering will happen here before too long.

I'd think you'd be interested in this as well?

As I have a fresh restorable SA in the garage, I'll be mocking this affair up on it and then remove and replace all of the items on my SA that is in use full time. Eventually getting all three done, one at a time.

Update on the Controller unit that comes with the harness assy.........

I knew it was an act of futility looking at the two screws covered with super glue to hide the Philips pockets as well as gluing the screws in place.

Opening the cover I found that the innards had been covered with the typical hard RTV sealant to keep prying eyes at bay.

So..........no reverse Eng happening here.

If I was making them, I'd do the same.

Spray that shit with a can of compressed air turned up-side-down to freeze said rtv, then shatter it with a (small) hammer.

Let us know how to build one after you reverse injuneer.
