I have 3 Super Dextas that have gotten progressively harder to steer. What do I need to do to correct the problem.

Check the thrust bearings on the bottom of the stub axles, these can fail over the years. Also check the track setting and make sure both sides are adjusted equally.

Have you taken the nut from the centre of the steering wheel and let oil percolate down to the box?

Yes I did take the steering wheel nut off and poured oil down the center of the shaft. That's all I have done. I'll check the thrust next.
