I was looking for Ross steering parts and "found" the gardentractorpullingtips.com/steering.htm website.
I have not ordered anything, only sent an email with questions.
Today I noticed the post in the Red Square Links for "not recommended suppliers".
I am glad I did not send any money.
I am rebuilding a Ross Steering box on a Wheel Horse D180.
The Ross Steering box has the code below stamped on the column.
Where can I get these items?
- Complete Lower Steering Box Bearing and Cup/Race Kit - Full Set. Includes two plastic bearing cages/ball spacers.
- 9/16" Diameter Cam Follower (Steering Pin).
- Flanged Sealed Ball Bearing to replace the insert at the top of the column. Looks like it's a little bigger than 1 3/8" OD with a 3/4" ID
- “Easy Steer" Upgrade Kit. For models with 3/4" diameter pitman arm stud.
I have seen some of these parts on the auction site but was hoping for someplace I could order everything from.
Used condition. Original 101763 pulleys.
One of the pulleys has some noise the other seems smooth.
On my D200, when I turn the steering wheel all the way to the left, it has a tight turn radius, but when I turn it all the way to the right, the turn radius is significantly wider.
The tie rods appear to be adjusted evenly.
Anyone have a similar problem and what was done to fix it? The steering does have quite a bit of play, at least 1/4 to 1/2 turn of the wheel.

I am new here and am new to the wheel horse tractors. I bought a property and a D-240 came with it. Can anyone give me an idea of the year range it could be ? It does have a Koehler motor. It runs really good, I was doing a little plowing with it and it blew a shaft seal off the hydro transmission pump ?
Any links to literature for removing the pump or suggestions from anyone here that knows more about these, who can point me in the right direction?
I have taken it partially apart
