Paula, what are you calling the tension arm? What is this "arm" suppose to do? What is it that you are trying to accomplish? You may be taking the steering wheel off for nothing. I just can't visualize what you're looking to do, or what is wrong with the machine. You have a steering wheel, steering shaft ext, steering gear assy which has the steering shaft in it, a drag link, then a tie rod. I added a link to a similar type tractor for reference.

SOURCE: cant remove steering wheel from john deere rx 95

At the bottom of the steering wheel you should see a screw that goes crossways through the steering wheel and shaft. It will have a nut on one side and a phillips head on the other. Do not try to unscrew this bolt! Use a punch and tap it out from the nut side being careful not to damage the end of it. It is serated and will not turn with a phillips screwdriver. Once this is removed the steering wheel should just pull off. If it doesn't, post your model/serial number and I will check to see why.

SOURCE: John deere 68 riding mower steering column won't

Just had same problem with my craftsmen. There is a very inadequate little nylon bushing supposed to keep that shaft stable. When worn out it allows that shaft to move and puts the gears in a bind. It is located on the end closest to arced gear where shaft hooks to drag link. Its a pain.

SOURCE: The steering linkage on my John Deere RX75 Riding Mower needs to be tightened. The steering wheel moves - but does not catch on the steering gears. The tires do move (if I do it by hand) - occasional

the gears are common to wear out where the steering gear meets the drive gear
