Howard Power Center Updates

For those that love their Howard Power Center as much as I do it would be nice to have a thread that helps us finds parts etc if something go's wrong. Mine works flawlessly but something must break someday.

I found this great news on the web: Just found this and do not know if it has been covered here yet but it looks to
be good news dated June 2011:

Hope they do re-open! I do not want a MH without a Howards!

I woudn't hold my breath on them reopening.

Mine stopped working and was basicly told (by howards 800 number) i was out of luck.

I love my hpc so I contacted the lawyer for the estate and to make a long story short
I don't see it happening. With every passing day it is becomming more and more difficult. The main issue is that the good will that Mr.Howard built over the years is being quickly destroyed by the lack of service being provided to current owners.
Myself and many others that have HPC with issues are being told that we are out of luck and our HPC is basicly a boat anchor at this point. The more this happens to people the worse its is going to be for HPC's future. Along with other products like comfort steer and truCenter coming to market.

So thats my feeling on this matter. As for myself I have taken mine apart and rebuilt the cylinder its working again.

I would be happy to help anyone who is having issues with there HPC.

Will take mine out and transfer it if I buy another MH. the Howards is unbelievable. Lets not give up.

I have used Gung Power steering fluid in mine and the small leak has quit.

Hours and hours of research and phone calls.

Let me know if you ever need yours rebuilt.
