i just got thru pressure washing about 46 years worth of cr*p off the tractor and other than a couple worn tie rod ends i see the pitman arm [for lack of correct part name] is flopping up and down like a beached flounder...i cant see a nut or anything that holds it to the steering sector and from the way it looks i'm gonna have to pull the front axle to get at it...please somebody tell me the magic way ;)

as far as the generator goes...its not charging and the wire harness is about completely shot...its no biggie tho...i park my equiptment close to the shed at nite so keeping battery charged is no prob till i figure something out...main thing is getting that steering tightened up...i drove it about 30 miles yesterday to get it home and it ran like a top...temp gauge never moved and i checked water with a thermometer and it was about 130*...not bad for a ride on a hot south Tejas day :)

I think from what I have heard is you have to take the cowling, grill, and radiator out in order to get to the steering box. I would put a thermostat in that motor, that thing needs to be running at about 180 degrees to run properly (the diesel won't burn all the way if the engine doesn't have a warm enough temperature). I would bet that it is the tierods and u joints on the steering that are not working since you said they move around a lot when you steer (at least that is what I got out of the message). Good luck, maybe someone else can step in and tell you a better way about the steering box.
