SC Steering Play

Have any of you successfully taken the steering play out of the gearbox of an SC? I am very happy with my little SC but a little less play in the steering would be nice. Last summer I had the top off the transmission and concluded it was just wear in the gears. I already turned it 180*. Glenn

Hey Glenn: Did you try adjusting the play out?

We had that trouble in some DC's and you just have to add shims under the steering column until the play disappears. I'm not sure that the SC is the same but suspect it might be. That plus the end play adustment on the side of the steering bos with good ball joints should make her tight as new. I doubt if you worm is worn, especially since you turned it. One way to check is this: When you turn does your steering wheel shaft move up and down? If so that is your problem.

How does one access those shims? Do you take the top off the transmission? Glenn F.

Hey Ted: If the shaft moves up & down, that's an indication the Bearings down @ the bottom are shot.

True, they are the first place to look, but even new bearings don't always solve the problem. That's why Case put all those shims under the steering column

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
