sounds like a malfunctioning power steering motor.. or it could be the rack. remove the motor and see if the rack turns properly(without ant sticks or glitches) if it does replace the motor.

SOURCE: Steering, The right front axle

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 sears craftsman riding lawnmower 5 years old. It will steer only hard to the left and will not turn to the right. the steering wheel turns but the mower does not. any suggestions


I had the same problem with my 15 year old Craftsman lawn tractor. I tried to adjust the steering travel but it gave me marginal relief for a year until the steering failed with my steering wheel spinning freely and the wheels free to go left and right. The left bias for steering indicates that the steering shaft pinion weld was shearing prior to failure.


I took the steering apart and found that the drive pinion gear was sheared off the end of the steering shaft at the weld. I replaced the shaft and sector gear to fix this issue.


This fix requires good amount of mechanical disassembly to get the replacement parts in place so you might need to go to a shop to get a mechanic to fix this if you aren't set up for this kind of fix by disconnecting the mower deck and jacking up the front end to access the steering gear assembly and steering arm links.

I have a 42" craftsman tractor... when you turn all the way to left the wheels get stuck... can I adjust anything?


What happens when you turn right? Does it turn as sharp as it used to? Almost sounds like the steering gear teeth have slipped and now it is steering to far to the left. You'll have to check the steering sector gears at the bottom of the steering column.

Turns fine to the left but will not turn right past going straight.


check your steering linkage on the front side by that right hand wheel, is it bent or being restricted? Even check up and down on the steering wheel column itself.

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.

Won't turn right


Had this on my riding mower. The steering rod going to the wheels from the steering assembly was bent. Take it off and straighten it and re-install.

Turns left sharply, barely turne right


The problem is either that there isn't enough range on the steering gear in the right direction, enough length on the steering drive rod (going to one front wheel), or a bent tierod (connecting the 2 front wheels) or worn tierod bushings.

Most likely is the tierod. I do not like how these are designed so for my own tractors I make one using tierod ends available from tractor supply company, grade 8 bolts and steel tube with a 3/4" inside diameter. A bit of measuring and welding later the steering is better than new.
