D series Steering

Recommended Posts


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.

This service manual has 3 pages on the steering in Section 7-9.

Sounds like your steering gears are worn, and may have skipped a tooth or two.  Check the recent thread ref.  "520H Turning Radius".

      What direction does the front PTO Pulley turn on a wheel horse D180 with a Kohler K482 as you face the front of the tractor?
      I want to get a hydraulic pump for a Johnson 10 loader I will be mounting to tractor and want to make sure I get a pump that rotates the correct direction.

      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.
      SCA 10200
      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.
      Thank You.

      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.
