Hey guys, I have a model 601 yard machines tractor and my steering is slipping. I took a look under the front end of the tractor and noticed that the steering pinion was slipping off of the steering gear. Upon inspection of the pinion I found that it had been worn down, so I ordered a new pinion. I put on the new pinion which definitely improved the situation but it does still slip. Any ideas what would cause this? It doesn't sit tight against the steering gear but I'm not sure how to fix that. Thanks!

You may need to replace the sector gear as well, but first remove it, and clean all the junk from under.

There is also a retainer bolt that keeps the sector gear from riding upward as you turn.

You can shim the pinion gear to move it downward a bit. Check the IPL for this machine.

#2, 17, and 7.

IPL = Illustrated Parts List, or the drawing you just posted. I grew up calling them IPBs (illustrated parts breakdowns, but IPL seems to be the more commonly used term today).
