The 332 parts catalog shows 2 steering valves (AM100268 & AM107082) depending on a serial number break. Having different part numbers and neither is listed as a sub for the other, I'd expect that you should use the correct part number for your serial number. Does anyone know the actual difference between the two? Can you not interchange them? I ask because 1) I've never seen any practical differences between these (318/322/332/420/430) steering valves, and 2) the 420 catalog shows AM107082 as a sub for AM100268. Anyone have any insights? Thx, Bryan

Bryan, the lack of a cross reference in one catalogue means nothing as far as I can tell. Deere is nuts when it comes to assigning different numbers to the same parts and charging dramatically different prices for them. I can't speak directly to the part in question but your experience of looking at the 420 catalogue seems to be a case of a=b and b=c, so a must equal c.

I recently wanted to pick up a spare set of 3 pt lift arm pins for my 1 series. JD wanted $44 each for the ones in my PC. No thanks. A few months later I was in the earlier S/N PC and the same exact part with a different number was $9. I bought two sets. 馃槀馃槀. Tom

AM100268 & AM107082
These are both five port steering units as the 332 only used 5 port steering. The four port number is AM39146 and from my experience driving one you don't really want one.

The 318 and 420 both used four port steering until serial number 285,000. Starting with 285,001 they were five port. And all 332's used five port.The change from AM100368 to AM107082 indicates an engineering change.

If I was selecting, I would opt for the AM107082 as it is a "new and improved version".

The other approach is to match the part number's listed serial number range to the actual serial number of the tractor you need it for... If your tractor is under 595254 then use the AM 100268...if above use the AM107282 assembly. The change in part number may indicate compatibility with other changes in the tractor frame and linkages that Deere implemented on these two serial number ranges, so following the recommendations would be a safe bet.

Note that these two part numbers are each for the complete steering assembly, not just the valve itself. Its expensive-- with the AM1007282 priced at $2600 +

Someone asked me if I had a valve for his 332 (AM100268) ... I have one from a 420 (AM107082) ... as AM107082 valve is shown as a sub for the AM100268 valve on the 420, I would assume that it would also sub for the AM100268 valve on the 332 as well ... it's just not stated as such in the 332 parts catalog. Thanks for the feedback ... Bryan
