The AutoFarm system must be powered OFF when installing or removing the roof module.
The supplied locking pin or a padlock must be in place whenever the vehicle is in operation.
The roof module must be removed when transporting the vehicle at speeds above 30 m.p.h.
Make sure that you are in a stable position on the tractor platform when removing the roof module, so that
you do not fall or drop the roof module.
2.2 Install the Mounting Rail
Remove the two rear cab roof bolts and use them to secure the AutoFarm mounting rail.

6.5 Connect the Hydraulic Hoses
The AutoFarm installation uses two existing hoses to connect the AutoFarm valve to the steering cylinders.
Two short hoses in the installation kit connect the tractor steering unit to the AutoFarm valve. Follow the
procedure below.
hose #3
hose #1
hose #2
hose #4
1. Remove hose #1 from the tractor steering unit and connect to the left “steer out” port on the AutoFarm
valve.
2. Remove hose #2 from the tractor steering unit and connect to the right “steer out” port on AutoFarm
valve.
3. Connect the AutoFarm left “steer in” hose #3 to the tractor steering unit where hose #1 was removed.
4. Connect the AutoFarm right “steer in” hose #4 to the tractor steering unit where hose #2 was removed.

6.7 Installing Optional Orifice to Load Sense
If the steering is very slow or does not turn the wheels in AutoSteer mode, you must install an orifice as
shown below. The orifice is provided in the hose installation kit shipped after August, 2005. Install the
orifice between the load sense tee and the load sense port on the steering unit.
