    By not turning right, do you mean the steering wheel turns but the wheels don't?

My son was mowing, with our cub cadet 2166, and ran the left front tire into a fence and now the steering wheel wont work. You can turn it and it feels really loose but it isn't connecting to the


Check the two main gears. One at the end of the steering shaft and the other that it contacts. Some brands are adjustable where the large gear is held on by a bolt and an excentric which allows you to move the large gear closer to the smaller gear. This may have been knocked out of place or the gear(s) stripped. Here is a basic diagram of the parts.

1) there are also bushings which hold the axle assembly into the front cross member, take a look at those.
2) while you are at it, replace the front wheel bearings on both sides

I have a 2 year old Cub Cadet and I find it very hard to steer the wheels during mowing.


First grease the the axles and all steering components associated with steering, there should be grease fittings where you can pump grease into, then make sure your tires are all filled to proper psi. Good Luck...

Cannot have blades engauged when in reverse mower stalls


Hello,

You are right, the mower has a disconnect for the pto when you try to mow in reverse. You need to turn the key to the mow in reverse position, and now you can mow going backwards.


Hope this helps, Matt

Electric pto will not engage the mowing deck. stopped working while mowing.


had a similar problem. The engine mount bolt that grounded the PTO black ground wire was loose- causing the pto to work erratically. To see this bolt (13mm i think) you will have to lie on your back and look under the machine. It is above the front steering arm of the right tire. If the wire is dangling you will need a new bolt. Thanks for the previous posts ;)

Craftsman Lawn tractor - When turning to the left the Left front wheel turns much farther then the right front wheel does on a hard right turn. Almost perpendicular to the tractor. Busings are brand new....


I've noticed this on other Craftsman and MTD mowers. The ones with the one main steering rod from the steering wheel to the left wheel and a connecting rod from the left wheel to the right wheel. I think that since we are advised to mow in a counter-clockwise direction, they design the mowers to turn tighter towards the left. It's in the design just like you suspected.
