2003 Prestige Steering Screech

Recommended Posts


When turning the steering wheel (engine on or off) there is sometimes a loud screeching sound like metal rubbing together. It is really difficult to tell where it is coming from, best guess is under the tractor where gears mesh. Has anyone else had this problem and could point me to a solution?

After oiling everything I could find under the tractor, it ended up the noise was coming from under the boot by the steering wheel. I put some oil on top of the boot and let it run down inside and the noise went away.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
