steering gear

I acquired a Huskee 17.5 single cylinder 42" cut that has steering shaft gear that is just about worn out. The steering shaft and sector gear sit in the open and the hole at the bottom of the shaft is enlarged. Is the any way of adapting something that has bearings and is enclosed to replace the existing exposed gears?
The shaft/gear is available new, but the enlarged hole in the sheet metal is a problem.
The sector gear shows little wear.
Any grease on the open gears would soon attract dust and dirt from mowing.

I agree.....I'm not familiar with that particular tractor but I find that those open gear steering systems work pretty well and are sometimes less prone to trouble than a real gear box.

Some that I have worked on have a sliding adjustment to set the gear mesh as well. If that hole is seriously "wallowed out", installing a new bushing may require welding in a steel bushing to accept the brass bushing, or possibly welding the hole shut and redrilling it.

That wallowed hole is usually a bushing about 1/8" thick and it fits in a six-sided hole in the steering gear plate.

I guess you could adapt some other steering gear to the tractor, but would it be worth it? Most people fix it once with the oem parts and just junk the tractor when it wears out again. (By then the deck will probably be shot too.)
