Replacing Steering Shaft

Recommended Posts


I have a 2009 22/44 Regent with 260 hours on it. I love to stripe every time I mow, which is about every 3 days. Last Fall I had to replace the steering gear because it was totally stripped. This Fall, just today, I went to replace the steering shaft because the steering is still too loose for my liking, and I noticed that the teeth are definitely worn.

Needless to say I wasn't successful. It seems to me that to replace the shaft, I need to disconnect all of the electrical connections, dashboard, steering wheel, shaft cover, and a few other things just to get the steering shaft out. All this, and I don't even know how to take the steering wheel off!

Is that correct? It seems very labor intensive and not for the typical DIY'er like myself.
