help steering on a D250
wheel horse guy, in Wheel Horse Tractors
One of the most detailed I've seen.
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.

Okay, so I just know just enough about engines to do basic care & know when something is wrong. I have what presented as a hydraulic leak on my 416H with fluid spraying everywhere from under the center of the tractor and it is really only significant when the PTO is engaged. I took the mowing deck off today expecting to find a cracked hose or loose fitting. Wrong! Instead I found fluid coming out from the steering shaft on the opposite side of what I am finding is called the "steering fitting lube" piece on the Toro parts website. So where it shows part #7 going in the fluid is leaking out of the other side. I'm really at a loss on this one.

I need some advice. Worked all afternoon and was unsuccessful at removing the steering wheel from a 1961 Wheel Horse tractor. How is the wheel attached to the steering column? There appear to be two holes where I suspect that the wheel is secured, but I cannot find a way to loosen any type of a fastener. Has anyone had a problem with this? I have a wheel puller attached but that wheel is really on there. How do I get this off?
Has anyone converted a 520-8 over to gear reduction steering?
Some questions if you have:
1. Does the motor have to come out?
2. Since the 520-8 has a swept axle, do I just need the lower steering shaft and gear box out of the donor?
3. Anything I am missing or should this be a simple swap?
Thanks in advance!
