sticky steering

993 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  agleisberg
I have noticed over the last few mowing my 165's steering has felt, for a lack of a better term, sticky.

I have greased all the point with grease zerks and checked the wheel bearings, they are fine.

any ideas?

You could jack it up again, and have someone wiggle the wheel back and forth just a little, and you might be able to see where the bind is. It just might be some crud stuck in the sector gear for the steering.
WD40 is a good solvent, not such a great lube. I'd suggest a real oil to lube the pivot points.
