Sounds like you're throwing parts at it before diagnosing the actual problem.
First, jack up the front end so both front wheels are off the ground. With the engine off, tie a couple of ropes to the steering wheel and the other ends of the ropes to something sturdy like the rear axle so the steering wheel can't turn. Then grab each of the front wheels, one at a time, and try to move them back and forth. Do they move at all? If so, what moves in the steering linkage, and do the wheels move independently of each other a little, or do they move in unison when you move one wheel.
If they move independently of each other at all, then there's something still loose in the linkage between the wheel spindles. If they move in unison then the linkage between the 2 sides is nice and tight.
Once you know the linkage between the 2 sides is good, then move the wheels again and look at the linkage form the left wheel back to the steering arm on the left side of the steering column. Does the drag link and steering arm move in unison with the wheel or is there some slop in that linkage?

Once you have the drag link adjusted and tightened properly, remove the ropes and turn the steering wheel in both directions until the steering arm begins to move. Once the arm moves in one direction, how far do you have to turn the steering wheel in the other direction before the arm begins to move in the other direction? If the steering wheel moves more than a quarter to a half turn or so between the movements of the arm, then something is worn or out of adjustment inside the steering column.

Did you look at the bushings on the kingpings (well assuming it has kingpins. If not, ball joints, perhaps - I really only know one ford tractor, and that has kingpins, and the bushings are nearly always worn out (because using a grease gun was too much work for some former owner?)

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
