HD5 Steering

I purchased an HD5 loader for work around my place last spring. It had just had new brakes installed. After a couple of months of use, it stopped steering to the right while going backward except while going uphill. It usually won't steer while going backward on level or downhill. Then just this week, I noticed that it is now having "trouble" turning to the right while going forward due to the left track not wanting to "work" all the time. Neither the operator nor service manuals give me any clues as to what to look at or adjust. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hey, Theres not but 2 things that the machine does to steer. the clutch releases and the brake stops that side from moving. One thing you have to watch on a HD5 is the two plugs in the bottom of the steering clutch housings. If they are out then if you drive through mud and crap it will get in from the bottom and if they are in it water can get in from the top and stand in it. I left mine out while working on dry land and replaced them when trying to work in muck. If your clutch don't release all the way then the brakes wont help you. That is were I would start pull both steering clutches back with the main clutch engaged. If it trys to move try to adjust them. If it don't move start checking the brake bands. My guess is that it has the plugs in the bottom and filled part of the way with water. Let us know what you find. Jonathan

Today's Featured Article - Measuring with Calipers - by Staff. The legs of inside calipers are curved outward at the extremities to facilitate measuring small holes, while outside caliper legs have a large curve inward to increase their capacity for large work. Firm-joint calipers are adjusted approximately by the hands and then set to the feel of the work by tapping them on a metal surface. It is a common practice when opening calipers by this means to tap the top of the joint. It is better, if possible, to tap the inside of the legs, as repeated blo ... [Read Article]
