I'm wondering what the mechanic is basing his estimate on. Seems high.
I'd repair the steering and keep going.

Well its a pretty well known dealership in the Royce city area. They picked they tractor up Monday and checked it out today. I was told they would be using a used rebuilt part due to cost of New Holland replacement to help keep costs down. I figure labor is the main expense and also noted that frequently the steering wheel is destroyed while pulling the steering sector and I may need to purchase a wheel also. I do really like this tractor although with the select o speed transmission and age anything could happen. I am inclined to bite the bullet and get this tractor fixed and hope for the best.
Thank you for your opinion. I read your posts a-
lot about select o speed transmissions I guess a person either loves them or hates them....
P.S. I love this site. I purchased a video years ago from yesterday's tractor and rebuilt the carb from watching it...saved myself some $$$$ then learned how to fix the rocker arm and lot's of other stuff

Sue, I sure hope whoever told you they couldn't pull the steering sector without crushing the steering wheel isn't one of the guys working on your tractor!If he is get away from those guys as FAST as you can!! I wish you were closer.I'm not that good of a mechanic but some of my friends are. If we knew you needed help you get the part and we would put it on for you! Good Luck! GT65
P.S. You might want to get a new steering wheel anyway! A nice brand new Repro. is only around $30 or so and you can get them pretty easy. Tractor supply or even this website, etc.......
