Question about Garden
I have a 1995 Troy-Bilt GTX20 lawn tractor with a 60'' mower. I believe the hydrolic control unit for the left turn steering has a leak inside the unit itself. Does anyone know if the unit can be rebuilt. The left turn steering works but looses turning force then wonders to the right. It looks like a drunk person has mowed the lawn. The right steering is ok and the motor, transaxel and all hydraulics operate great. I believe that it may just need an O-ring or gasket for the left steering but I don't want to take the unit apart if it can't be repaired. I have searched the internet for a new unit but it has been discontinued. I have also tried to find a used unit and still didn't have any success.Thanks for any help that anyone can give me.

If you haven't already, check to see if there is a hunk of wood wedged between the blade(s) and mower deck. I've seen that happen. I pried the hunk of wood out with a crowbar and life was good again. The second time, someone ran over a campfire log they didn't see under leaves last fall and bent the blade spindle. It basically froze the spindle in place even though there wasn't anything wedged in there. I removed the belt from the top of the mower deck and then it started just fine..... although the blades and shaft were toast and had to be replaced. If you can disengage the mower deck without removing the belt(s), try it if you haven't already. See if it starts that way. If not, the issue may be more serious such as a broken connecting rod in the engine. Try the simple stuff above first to troubleshoot the cause.
