C Allis steering wobble

Just bought a 1946 "C" tricycle, and drove it home yesterday. It ran well, but has a decided front wheel wobble in road gear. What generally needs to be replaced in this situation? Also, how can I tell what decals to get for this tractor? Looking at the Central Tractor Parts catalog from Des Moines, apparently they make decals with black lettering, and blue lettering. (The existing decals are faded so badly that I can't tell which was used).

Thanks for the advice, everyone. Are new bearings readily available from AGCO dealers for these older AC tractors?

do you have an owners or an I&T manual for it? there shoul be a exploded view of the front end. theres a bearing in the pedstal thats worn out. my '42 C does the same thing, but i'm swapping mine to a wide front axle, so i'm not going to fix mine.

Here's a reply I got last year when I asked about a drag link with worn out rubber:
I have used 3M Window-weld super fast urethane calk/adhesive. It's used to install windshields and you can get it at auto parts stores. I used it on tie-rod ends and drag link and it has held up for a couple years. I drilled a 1/4 inch hole in the back side of the joint and injected the stuff until it oozed out around the stud. Let it cure a few days and trim off the excess.
If the steering gear is worn out, it may be easier to find a good used one than to fix a loose one.

As far as my books say the decals should be blue up to 1948. This is from Terry Deans Allis Chalmers farm tractors and crawlers data book. Hope this helps.

Jack up the front of the tractor so front wheels off ground. Then start wiggling things to see where the play is. Couls be wheel bearings, front gear box , rear gear box. Either may need rebuilt. Shims can be removed from front gear box. A set screw (behind starter) can be tightened to help rear gear box. Past that it is bushings and bearings that need replacement

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
