Bolens 1050 tight steering

Have not been here for a while as my bolens has been running well. However, today noticed something odd - steering starting to become tight and it is difficult to turn steering wheel - as well as that noticed that when I turn steering wheel clutch foot lever moves up and down - is there a zirk for the steering for lube? Something seems to be jamming up but cannot see what it is. Thanks Lee

There is a grease fitting on the bottom of the sterring colum under the tractor and it's somewhat hard to get to. Also it sounds like the gear that the draglink connects to is starting to get tight on the shaft it's on. Whiel you are under the tractor greasing it I would spray the gears and shaft with penetrating oil. Also spray the part of the shaft that the clutch pedal rides on.
