  1. Yeah, is easy when he tractor is new. The real pain is when the tractor is at least 5-7 yrs old and the part has never been replace, That's the real challenge!! Good Video if you have that same model. get a thumbs up from me

  2. My wife hit a stump last summer and knocked the steering out of alignment, both wheels went toe out. I replaced both drag links and the steering gear but I still have bad toe out. Do I need to loosen the mounting plate and realign the wheels before tightening it?

  3. Thank goodness my tractor does not have all that stuff to remove. I have bought both new arms from your warehouse and still the wheels do not line up…what gives??? I'm confused now????

  4. I literally just finished this job on the left steering rod without removing the plate at the bottom, in the dark, no less! One of the most difficult jobs I've done!

  5. You don't need to remove the large bolt that holds the sector to the plate. Just take off the front nuts of both drag links and let the links hang down. You can loosen everything with the plate still attached. IMHO just did it.
