I've been told there are (were) lower ratio steering gears sold for the WD/WD45 that allow easier steering. My WD is narrow front with no power steering. In tight spots (slow travel speed or stopped) it is sometimes difficult to turn the steering wheel. Can someone confirm that such lower ratio steering gears exist? Are they availablesomewhere?.......thanks...........RP

you have a loader on it, or are you a little feller?

Either way, A charr-lynn hydraulic torque generator would help more.

I have a WD that steers very easily. All I do to it is make sure that it is well lubricated. I've always been amazed at how easy it steers. Maybe before my time someone has done something to it.

I think TSC used to sell an aftermarket worm gear a very long time ago.

I have a WD that I have gone thru the front bolster and believe it to be right. It steers pretty heavy. I have a early styled WC and the steering on it takes half the effort of the WD.

I have heard several old timers say that they farmed long and hard with both the WC and WD, and they complained that the WDs steered much harder than WCs.

I belive the whole bolster assembly can be swapped between the WD and WC, though I have not done that myself---YET.

All I can remember is that the WD steering ratio was higher than the WC, and WD gears could be retrofit to the WC for easier steering. Higher ratio = more turns lock to lock.
