Fixing steering wobble in the 300

Postby ShawnAgne » Fri Mar 15, 2019 4:57 am

Decided to tackle the steering wobble on the 300.
Just wondering what all parts I need to order. Watched the Steiner video, the worm gear is a full gear so I could flip it around, just wondering what else I should get. Or how I should approach this.

Also the large nut that goes on the steering column is tapered and stuck on, how do you suggest getting it off?

Is the 300 a row crop or utility tractor?

The bearings in some row crop tractor's pedestal wear and cause a wobble.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Tricycle, so rowcrop I guess

As I said the hardest part right now for me is to figure out how to get the nut off of the front end (Pedestal) where the gearing is for the wheels to slide out the steering wheel rod.

EDIT: The wobble only happens when in 5th gear going down the road and doesn't happen the entire time. Slower speeds its fine. Just like in the Steiner video. There feels like there is slop from where the worm gear on the steering wheel meshes with the gear in the steering box.
