I have just got a CA in very good cond. except the front wheels wobble in 4th gear. It appears the loose motion is in the front section of steering unit. I would appreciate any hints in how this is fixed. This is my first AC tractor. I am not a mechanic but intend to tackel this job. I have ordered a shop manual but not arrived.

Seabee, Another thing to check is the air pressure in the front tires. Sometimes wobble will be accentuated if one tire is significantly lower in pressure than the other. Most likely, though, it is bearings/shims in the front end or loose steering arm bushings. - Phil

I know the C steering is different, but I had a similar problem on a WD. The race of the bearing in the bottom of the pedestal was 'scalloped', and allowed for enough play at higher speeds, especially on blacktop, for the wheels to do the same thing yours are doing. So checking the bearing around the shaft and gear Brian refers to might also be in order.

if you pull the four bolts out of the front bolster(have the tractor jacked up and supported) there should be some shims between it and the tractor, try removing a shim and/or changing the thickness of the shim stack to allow more gear mesh. do not overdo it because the steering will not turn, BTDT. also check the drag link and the play at the steering box.
good luck.

I know this will seem silly, but if this has adjustable wide front end then first tighten the bolts which adjust the width of the front axle. Mine had play even after the front bearing where replaced. So I really tightened up the front adjustment bolts and the remaining play dissappeared.
