Loose Steering 9hp.Landlord

Recommended Posts

mowerman1193
I picked up another 64 Landlord the other day and the steering is loose on it(turn the wheel a 1/4-1/2 turn before the tires turn). How do I make straight lawn stripes with this LOL[:0]I am not a drinker but I thought maybe I need to be drunk before I can make straight stripes :D[:0] No seriously,I was told that there might be a ajustment on it somewhere to fix this.Anyone know anything about it?I figured it was just worn out and needed to replace some parts, but that would be great if I could just make a adjustment on it. Thanks for any help/advice

My guess is it might be in the steering arm beneath the gears or more than likely wear in the steering shaft U-joint. Mine was wore in the bushings in the U-joint and the steering arm was loose.

I also have a 64 9hp,I've found that just about every thing gets loose sooner or later. A few thins to check are 1)u-joint in steering shaft,2)steering arms set screws[at sector shaftand spindle],3)drag link ends,4) tie rod end bushings,5) check wheel bearings. On the models with the wedge shaped sector gear there is an eccentric to adjust back lash at steering shaft/sector but I think you may also find the sector gear worn especially in the staight ahead position. It's really a process of elimination,turning the steering wheel back and forth slowly while observing what moves and what doesn't! I happen to like the 9 hp 40 yrs and still tickin.:D:o):p

Also, check the tension of the main front axle bolt. Sometimes turning the wheel will actually move the axle if this is too loose. The bushings in your king pins could also be worn out (common problem) stinkster

The old B10, I just picked up, had real sloppy steering. I did the just the two quoted recommendations, as made be Reed. Nothing needs to be removed. Just reach under the tractor to where the steering shaft spindle comes out the bottom, and the steering arms by the wheels. The set screws had worked loose in these locations. Tools needed--allen wrench. Cleared up most of the slop.

Well I finally got around to checking out the steering and it was the set screws was loose.I snugged them up and it is fairly tight now.It has its normal worn parts(bushings and balljoints).I looked at the gears and they really did not look to bad for the age of the tractor. Thanks again for all the tips...

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
