Re: How slack is your steering?
Hi, thanks to all for the advice, looks like my last post didn't work, so shortened version here:
All the movements looks to be in part 18, bushings were ok but maybe the whole thing is just a bit worn, or, the amount of movement is pretty normal for JD mowers! My LT166 was also pretty loose but it was 20 years old and had done a hard life, so I don't have a lot to compare with....
However the steering does feel a bit tighter compared to when I changed the part out, which is no big surprise.
How much movement does everyone else have on their steering wheel, when parked, before the wheels start to turn (or you start to feel resistance). I just did a bit more of a scientific test, with one finger I can move the wheel 2.5inches without any real effort before it starts to engage!
