Re: Wobbling and loose feeling steering??
I am not a tractor guy but will offer this. On my old 1973 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 there was a slotted screw with a lock nut on the steering box that would allow you to take out the free play. Also I had to rebuild the steering box where the pitman arm attaches. That Land Cruiser used to wander something terrible on slightly rutted asphalt roads, enough that it would yank the wheel out of your hand. Once the rebuild and the steering box adjustment was done it tracked and drove like new. Maybe the tractor has a similar issue. Just food for thought. Bill
