Farmall B Steering gear ?

Postby BJ Moretz » Fri Aug 03, 2012 7:47 am

Hi Guys
At full speed I get some wobble of the front wheels. From what I gather there are no new parts for the steering of a farmall B. I have only 1/4 turn of slop. Any info, old posts etc I can find / learn from would be appreciated. They say experience is the best teacher and I am sure learning lot lately. LOL
Thanks in advance. Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

I found some gears on E bay that look to be in great shape in the pictures. We will see when they get here. My winter is full of things to do with the B. Reseal and replace bearings in the final drives, reseal the tranny, new brakes and replace the steering gears seals and bearings. Any words of advice on the steering gear
job ? It is the only job that I feel might give me trouble.

getting the bottom bearing off is a bit difficult. see the pic in my basket case post.

Question: does the front pedestal angle to the rear? i'm putting one back together that i did not dissassemble.
