4wd Front Axle/ Steering Issue

Postby 1938Case » Fri Nov 13, 2020 2:05 pm

I bought a YM1401d last week (with Koyker 80 loader and Yanmar tiller). It is difficult to steer going forwards and almost impossible to steer when backing up. Zerks take grease and steering is decently tight. Axle has oil at the shaft level and looks normal (not milky). It looks to me like the housing that rotates at the wheel is rubbing (tipped out) on the wheel side as though the bearings are out (along the king pin). I have not taken it apart yet, but plan on it this winter. Do I just replace all the bearings and seals (vertical and horizontal) while I'm in there?

I've been going through this <https://www.hoyetractor.com/CTGY/14014WDEXTERNAL.htm> diagram looking at all the bearings, bushings, seals, etc. Lots of stuff packed into a small space!

I would recommend taking it apart for inspection, then order parts needed.
