Broadmoor 717 steering

Recommended Posts

I got the little thing running and mowing now, what a processsm00 but it is interesting to me that my 64LL is turning a tighter radius than the Broad. I can't seem to find a spec for the Broadmoor/homesteaders saying what they are supposed to be for turn radius, so does this make sense or is something amiss? It doesn't seem right, but I have made the gear mesh proper and all points are lubricated.

Actually, the camber seems more shallow on it than the LL or the factory pix for that matter. I have new spindle pivot bushings on the way, so hopefully that will help. The PO somehow repaired the tie rod 3/8" too long, so the front tires were scrubbed bald when I got to it. That is correct now and it runs better, but I would have thought the LL being so much larger would have a larger radius. Perhaps I will consult my hot-rod steering engineer for some mod advice :D
