Welcome to the Ford board.
I've been thinking about this one since last night - and still don't have an answer.
What Sean suggested about checking the steering arms on the front spindles is apt. They should be pointing the same relative amount rearward.
The next steps we will do with the front end of the tractor jacked up off the ground and the engine off.
We want to look for mechanical issues and not hydraulic.
Turn the front tires from lock to lock. Are both wheels turning the same amount?
How are the tie rod ends on the tie rods? Is one or more of them very loose or sloppy??
How about the adjustment on the sector gears?
Could one side be badly out of adjustment so it does not engage as soon as the other?
In other words, the steering arms on the sides of the steering box should start moving (one forward, one aft) at exactly the the same time when you turn the wheel side to side.
Can you see any evidence of one of the sector shafts being bent or twisted?
Check those things and post back. Those steering systems are pretty simple but the analysis on this one might take us a while.

ultradog, Hi bud, The easy way out for him would be to find another tractor that"s the same and compare the steering components. You don"t have to do all that heavy thinking( gives me a headache)lol-ed
