My lawn tractor pulls to the right when driving can i fix this?
The Toe In/Toe Out will have to be adjusted (if the steering rods to each front wheel have sleeves), just like on a car.
Toe-in is the operating angle of front wheels on a riding tractor. If the front edge of the wheels point inward, towards each other, then the wheels have toe-in. If the front wheels point outward, the unit has toe-out (or negative toe-in). Adjustment of toe-in is necessary to maintain proper steering control.
Unlike automobiles, our tractors have pre-set camber and caster settings. Therefore no camber or caster adjustment is necessary.
Acceptable toe-in adjustment range for all of our lawn & garden tractors is anywhere between 1/16"-5/16". With 1/8" serving as the optimal range.
Detailed toe-in adjustment procedures for the various models of tractors are reviewed in the "Adjustments" section of the Operators Manual for the tractor.
If tires are not toed-in properly after adjustment, it is likely that other part(s) need service or adjustment. axles, wheel bushings, control arms and other steering components may be worn or damaged and will need inspection. Service these items as needed.
You haven't stated your make and model, so I can't send you the manual with the exact procedure for your machine.
