Hi, I have a 1965 case 732c (730 western special with com) with a terrible front wheeel shimmy. LOCAL DEALER HAS REBUILT the ross side cylinder and pump. The manual steering box has had all bearings replaced and adjustments made. The steering shaft u-joints are also new. TRACTOR IS DANGEROUS at speed! Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks

Thought about spot welding it but your idea sounds better. Thanks

Assume your 730 is a wide front end. If so, adjust the wheel toe-in more inboard at the front of the wheel. Had the same problem on my 800 and the adjustment fixed it. I believe as our Ol' girls wear there needs to be excessive toe-in to drag the tires down the road as little sideways to keep the worn components tight to one side.

Have an 830 with a wide front end. It is loose on top of the spindles. The splines have worn in the casting and causes a wicked "shimmy".
