Front axle loose

Recommended Posts

The steering on my Son in law/ Grandson's 265H is loose but sticking when you turn to the right at slow speed.

I jacked the tractor up(avoiding the zerk) and found the axle pivots back and forth about an inch or more both ways.

I looked up the schematics and it doesn't list a bushing just an axle pin P/N Toro 92-7057-03. My question is does this pin wear out or is it the axle itself?

I have new wheel bearings on the way and adjusted the toe in(This is when the sticking steering to the right at slow speeds started) Before adjustment it was very difficult to turn at slow speeds as the toe in way way way off. Plus 2 inches toe out.

Most of the time the axle pin takes the brunt of the wear, but the axle it's self will wear also. If the hole is worn in the axle it can be drilled over sized so that a bushing can be used.
