Steer wheel and shaft come out of the steering tube on 1610

Postby norfolktoad » Tue Aug 08, 2017 11:31 am

After cutting grass on a rough field, I felt the steer go stiff. I was able to lift the steering wheel and the shaft about 6 inches out of the tube.
I am able to push the shaft back down and it re-engages. From the parts diagram I am unable to determine what has gone wrong. There was little play in the steering before this happened. I am presuming a steering box rebuild is necessary. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Sounds to me like your upper bearing has disintegrated. Watch these videos if you haven't. http://www.hoyetractor.com/howto.htm

I thought it might be the bearing but I can pull the shaft out a good 6 inches. I had also thought I may have a 2 pieces piece shaft which is secured together by a roll pin, and the roll pin has either sheared or come out. Tomorrows job will be to remove the steering box and examine before I order parts. This happened just as the tractor meter turned to 1000 hrs. :mrgreen:

Getting parts in the UK may be difficult, although they may be available in Belgium :cry: .
