I'm only speculating but keep a eye on front tyer preshers I know low preshers in the front adds a lot of presher to the steering assembely. Most people don't every check there tyres.

    There seem to be plenty of grease on the sector and steering gear. I just took both off the mower this afternoon and both are worn. Going once again to JD Equip to get parts again. Wondering why the bushings that I'm getting once again are plastic and not made of a metallic material.

SOURCE: John Deere LA175 lawn tractor front wheel bushings

Remove the tire and wheel from the spindle. Take a long punch or similar item and reach in the center of the wheel hub where the spindle goes. Locate the space in between the inner and outer bushing and tap the edge of the old bushing until it comes out. Now go in from the other side and do the same with the other bushing. This one will be a little easier to do since you don't have to hunt for the center space. Put the new bushings back in the same way just be sure you drive them in STRAIGHT

My L130 will not turn right.


you will need to change the steering gear , and the steering pinion and its not a bad idea to change the gear pivots (2) and also the bottom steering wheel shaft bushing. they sell a complete kit on ebay that has it all in one nice n tidy kit.> http://www.ebay.com/itm/JOHN-DEERE-STEERING-GEAR-REPAIR-KIT-102-135-LA120-LA155-/261112192757?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccb7fdef5

dont let the high price full you, just the pinion $40 and the steering gear $32 is $72 and you get both and the $10 bushings x2 plus for the same price!!

Steering is loose. How to tighten it?


Joseph, Most likely it is the bronze bushing at the other end of the steering shaft. You will need to remove the mower deck to access it more easily. The steering gear could be replaced at the same time if you want, you will be right there at both the bushing and the gear, the sector shaft hopefully is ok. You can view this with a flash light before disassembly. It is on the steernig shaft that goes behind the fuel tank, down into the frame. As you or a helper turn the steernig wheel back and forth, you can see the engagment of the steering gear and the sector shaft, to determine if they need replacing too. Your dealer should have a dozen or so of those bronze bushings. Its not a bad job to do.

John deere 68 riding mower steering column won't turn wheel assembly via arced toothed plate. Wheel assembly OK and greased. Some minor play when rotating steering column with steering wheel, but appears...


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.
