'73 16 Automatic fixing and restoration

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

 

I'm new here so please redirect this post to the right section in case that you consider this isn't the right one.

 

Also, thanks for all the good information and ideas you all have placed here... really good stuff.

 

Now the problem I know I have (more might come with the restoration): I have a '73 16 Automatic with a steering problem. I'll try to explain the part that is broken... at the joint where the "vertical" shaft meets the horizontal shaft, there is a base where the "vertical" shaft pivots. This base is held by two bolts. The problem I have is that this base is broken/cracked next to one of the bolts. I can still steer the tractor, but only when it's moving. Otherwise this base tilts to one side and, of course, the horizontal shaft doesn't move.

 

Questions:

 

How do you call/id this part?

Is it available from the manufactures?

If not, anybody out there who has one for sale?

 

In case that it helps, the tractor model is 1 044 0 8.

 

Thanks for any answer/info about this would be really appreciated

It sounds to me like you're talking about the steering support. It bolts to the frame at the bottom end of the steering column. From there it's a horizontal shaft with a 'fan' gear on it. It won't be too hard to find one of those.

That's it. It's just behind the battery. I'll try to look for "steering support" for WH 16 automatic. Let's see what I get.

 

Thanks,

You're welcome. I'll bet somebody will be along shortly that has one he'll part with.

I got 5 of them on the shelf. If the lift adjustment is set to high, the lift arm will hit and break it especially with hyd lift
