Please help ne identify this part before i go to far

Postby Command52 » Fri Apr 03, 2020 4:35 pm

I have rebuilt my this whole tractor; engine , Differential , Transmission, steering, starter and everything else. My distributor was last. Today I pulled the distributor out of the bucket and this was in the bucket on my work bench . It could have come from any part of my rebuild as I did most on my work on my bench. I measured it and close as I can come is 1 1/8 round {SIDE TO SIDE} 5/16 thick and the center hole is about 9/16 , Please help . I want to rap this up but now afraid to go to far, Thank you Billy

the spacer for the steering is, probably left it off when you put the shaft in

Check the free play in your steering. If it is the steering shaft spacer, you should find a lot of free play with the shaft moving axially as you turn the wheel.

All things considered if that’s it you’ve got an easy fix and your lucky.
