I HAVE A 642B BOBCAT THAT CREEPS FORWARD. I'VE BEEN TOLD IT NEEDS ADJUSTING OR THAT THERE IS AN ADJUSTMENT FOR THIS PROBLEM. DOES ANYONE OUT THERE KNOW HOW TO MAKE THIS "ADJUSTMENT" ? LOCAL DEALER IMPLIES IT IS SOMETHING THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO. HOPEFULLY, I CAN DO IT MYSELF. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

You can do this your self, it is just adjustments on the hydrostatic pump where the steering levers attach. You need to adjust the stops so that its all centred. Its an awfull job, but anyone can do it with alot of patience. Block the loader so the wheels are free to move, remove the rops (or lift it if your model allows this). Start on the back section, when its rite move to the front one. If i remember, i will scan details on this and post it. Its for a 731 or a 743, but they are essentially the same pump.

THANKS. I APPRECIATE THE HELP. FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, THE ONE IN THE REAR WILL BE A BEAST TO GET TO. IF YOU CAN SCAN THE INSTRUCTIONS, THAT WOULD BE AN EVEN GREATER HELP. THANKS AGAIN.
