9020 Steering shaft

Recommended Posts

I removed the steering shaft and after i cleaned it up i noticed a grove on the shaft just above where the shaft support tube starts below the steering wheel.There was a circlip and a washer.I noticed that the clip didn't fit to well,so when i cleaned out the grove it it not a clip grove,it is more a o-ring grove(radiused)at the bottom. The manual doesn't show anything like this,so what have i got?Also,are the retaining ring,thrust washer,and both bearings up inside the support tube that is attached to the support assembly?Thanks for you assistance. Jerry,

I think the clip and washer you describe supports the steering shaft in the housing and takes downward loads on the steering wheel. Over time the clip will get worn and slip out of the groove, especially if you push down hard on the wheel. I have replaced the E-clip on mine and it seems to be holding OK. The picture above is not very clear on this.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
