SOURCE: The steering colum skips when you turn. Sounds

You unfortunatly have the older style steering assembly and is not an easy fix. My best advice is to take it to a reliable shop to have the steering repaired. It may just need the bushings on the shaft replaced or the gears themselves, depending on the damage.
You can look down at the bottom of the steering shaft and see where the gears are skipping over each other.

Tightening steering wheel on husqvarna tractor 42in 15 horsepower no. yth1542


Interesting! The steering gear can commonly become loose at a several points. I would check the steering wheel itself, prise off the central plastic cover and make sure the nut underneath is tight. Check the gear at the bottom of the steering wheel shaft, if this gets loose it can jump the gear teeth. Sometimes this is so bad the steering wheel will turn without moving the wheels. Tighten everything and replace any worn parts.

Craftsman YT 3000 left tire is not aligned. When you make a turn the tire doesn't stop it keeps turning almost making it turn a full 180. Took it to a "mechanic" said nothing is bent or looks damaged


Hi Victor:

If you follow the steering from the wheel down the shaft you will probably find a geared "quadrant". Odds are thar one of the teeth has "jumped" a notch or two out of alignment.
The fix will be to loosen the mechanism so that you can re-align to the correct positiion, then tighten it back up.

The lawn tractor hit a post and now the left front wheel is out of alignment. How can I make it aligned?


the steering tie bar (goes from left to right steering brackets and makes the wheels steer together) should be straight. if it's bent, that is your problem.

Cub cadet lawn mower steering wheel will not turn all the way to the right. It turns all the way to the left, but not the right. Checked the teeth on the fan gear, all are okay. what next?


Even though the teeth on the fan gear are ok, they may have skipped past each other a few teeth. My tractor has a bushing that the end of the steering rod passed through before attaching to the fan gear. The bearing was worn, allowing the steering rod to move, and the fan gear would then to lose it's grip from time to time, eventually making my tractor perform much like yours. See if you can replace that bushing, your issue should be solved.

Steering only turn to left side


You will probably need to place the steering shaft gear and the sector gear and the lower bushing. The original cause of failure is likely the lower bushing where the steering shaft goes through the frame. It probably wore out allowing the shaft to move away from the sector gear allowing the gear teeth to skip on each other.

The steering on my Husquavana 150 mower is slack and uneven, it turns sharp to left but not to right. Gear wheel at end of steering shaft is worn. How do I repair it with more sustainable solution. Thank...


replace steering gear and lower nyliner bushings on steering shaft. Also check sector gear for wear and replace if needed. When replacing gear place front wheels straight forward and center steering wheel-the unit should steer the same both ways then.
