This is not a "fix", just a relief of the symptoms. Experiment with less air pressure in front tires. A bout 7 lbs less helped mine.

You'll see a big set screw with a locknut on the lower end of the front of the tower. Right dead center between the wheels down low. That set screw is designed to apply pressure on a key in bottom end of the vertical spindle. It's possible that by tightening that set bolt you can solve the problem but after all those years I'd suggest taking a look at the key from the bottom. Just remove one front wheel and you can get to the whole thing. A kid could figure it all out in about three minutes. Key is probably worn. Hopefully it hasn't worn out the slot too much.

It is a narrow front.

Don"t forget the bearing at the bottom of the spindle. It"s had 50 years of hammering in a small range of motion- it tends to get "scalloped" with wear. Can disconnect the axle casting at the bottom of the pedestal, pull the spindle out the top, and check the bearing at the bottom. Replace the bearing and the race, which is scalloped. Drives worse on hard-surface roads, right?

If you go full throttle down the road it starts until you slow down.

1st, check the front wheel bearings for proper adjustment. Running the right front tire 5 lbs lower air pressure can help reduce wobble..

Is this a NF or wide front..? Adjust all pivots or replace badly worn parts. Is there plenty oil/grease in the steering box..?

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
