MTD Steering what now?
I have a 2008 Yard Machines 13RN772G029 mower. It's in okay shape for its age but the steering has stripped out. I replaced the steering gear, shaft, and the bronze bushing for the shaft. With all the new parts, the gear teeth dont mesh and are stripping out the shaft gear again. The parts are supposed to be MTD OEM parts. Nothing is missing according to the parts diagram. Nothing appears to be worn in the chassis. I'm so stumped here. It seems like the steering shaft gear is too small of diameter to mesh correctly. I moved the top plate under the steering gear to raise it up and it appears to mesh a little better but still not good. Anyone have any experience with this?
Thanks in advance.
