I managed to get it tightened up on the shaft....but now the centering adjustment is off. Wished I had my (ordered) manual.... I *assume* that this adjustment is made by moving the blocks (held in by two bolts) that seat against the two rollers on the yokes. I've read through what I could find searching....but is there a right and wrong order of adjustment? One side's fine. I'm guessing that I leave that side alone, and fuss with the other. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Jim
Jim leave the one side alone. Put the machine on blacks so the wheels can rotate and release the park brake, push the stick and let them center themselves and see if the end result is consistant.
Now lift the cab and move the trouble side steering stick to where the wheels stop.
Observe which of the blocks you mentioned is not touching, loose the bolt so it is lightly holding on and then tap the block up against the arm you tighted up, and retighten the bolt.
Move the stick and let it center itself again a few times, repeat if necessary.
Note over time the plastic guides and the round and square contact parts can wear to the point where it is impossible to get a repeatable neutral, and it time for new parts.
Lube the plastic sliders any time you have the cab up, also there is a grease nipple on each steering lever. Also check the oil level in the aluminum gear case that drives the fan, its 80 /90 gear oil
