I have a yardman that had a similar problem, there is a spacer/gromit at the end of the shaft just above the gear this needs to be in place to hold the steering shaft straight.

How do I remove the steering shaft on Yard


You could use an impact screwdriver. Use a #3 phillips bit if the screw is large. You smack the end of the impact screwdriver with a hammer and the action pushes in and turns on the screw.

Steering skips


Three things need to be checked. The steering shaft for play, the pinion gear on the end of the steering shaft and your stationary gear at the bottom. Raise the hood, turn the wheel back and forth so you can see where the play is coming from.

Steering gear slips


You have the steering shaft the pinion gear on the end of the shaft and the stationary gear at the bottom on the frame. Either the gears are worn out or the steering shaft has too much play in it causing the gears to slip.

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.

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.

Look under the seat of your tractor and note the complete Model number.
(usually begins with 917. _ _ _ _ _ _ )

Next, go to THIS PAGE and use the Model Number to find an exploded view of the steering components and how they assemble.

Hope this helps,

Cant remove steering wheel from john deere rx 95 lawn mower


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.
