175 Steering

I'm trying to tighten up the steering on our 175. The spline where the steering arm (the one that connects to the tie rods) is splined on to the main steering shaft is badly worn.

Any body have any good methods of fixing this?

I'm thinking about filling the spline up with epoxy or JB Weld and letting it set up.

Or maybe drilling and tapping holes up through the spline and screwing in bolts.

Any better methods?

I'll go ahead and get a price on a new shaft and steering arm for kicks, just to see what side of $2,000 the dealers are on.

Thanks guys.

I JB Welded it. I'll let her set for a few days and see what happens.

I also priced out a new shaft and arm. To my surprise the dealer only wants $785 for the pair. $295 at Worthingtons.

I'll see how JB holds then pick up new ones when needed.

Good Day,

The J.B. Weld may or may not work, but I would try it. What have you got to loose ? I like the "kwik dry" formula and use it on alot on bearing races, even if they fit good. Can you remove any material at the slot where the clamping bolt goes ? Maybe,by using a larger angle grinder ? I dunno just a thought.

Not sure about that particular place, but the arms on top of the spindles on JD backhoes tend to wear out the splines. I take it off and cut thru one side with a torch then vee it out and weld it back. Shrinks it down until it fits tight. Usually have to drop it on fairly warm to get it all the way on. When it cools have never had one come loose again.
