Default Loose Steering Wheel troy bilt

I have 2002 Troy bilt 46" pedal drive. The steering has developed a lot of play and looks like the steering wheel has poped up. OI checked below and nuts seem tight, Front wheel look misaligned at times. Can anyone assit.

Several of us have had the same problem. It is a fairly easy fix. The front end bushings (2) need replaced along with the lt. and rt. ball joints. Fixed mine up good as new. Also there is a trick to setting the toe-in. Let me know if you need anything further.

Thanks FullThrottle. I replaced the hex flange bearing. It was a]plastic part but the one Instaled was metal. Also, replaced the plastic bushings inside and out ands greased. This made the wheels sit a lot firmer on the axle. I still have some play in the steeerng wheel and eas wonder if replacing the pinion gear would help or do I need to replace the steeing gear as well?
You said there was a trick to setting the tow in? Please share that with me.

Mine whiggles like crazy on my 42inch cut bronco. Would I have to replace the same things? Is that easy for a beginner?

I don't think it was too hard. Finding the right angle to pull the streering shaft out was a liitle difficult. I would advise to use a pipe wrench on the shaft to tighten and not use or hold the steering wheel as a back up.

I have a model 609 Pedal Drive.
I just replaced the hex flange bushing, all 4 bushings in the axle (like king pin bushings), all wheel bearings, & one of the drag link bushings, (waiting for the other one to be in stock at the dealer), and the pivot bar end caps. (axle end caps) My front tires still make contact with the end caps & look like they're leaning in on the tractor. I don't remember them being like that when the tractor was new. What else could be wrong?

Your steering shaft bearings will do that . Now on the upper portion of the drive shaft that runs thru the dash hopefully you haven't worn the hole out on top. If so you may need to file and make it round again and find a plastic bearing to fit in to make it right again.
