Eureka!......130 Steering slop solved.

Sun Jul 29, 2012 10:53 am

Sometimes good things take time.
Found a broken woodruff key on the shaft (the one that holds the gear).
To me, that was an awesome find.
enjoy the photo.

As hard a time as you've had getting that apart, I'm glad it will be a simple fix for you.

Good deal. Check everything else though to make sure there is no slop. A little bit turns into a lot when things are back together.

Thanks Bob,
The steering rod and bearing are still stuck in there.
The shaft moves in and out of the bearing (ST 287) about 3/8", but that bearing does not want to budge.
I'll get it out somehow, might as well change the bearing and seal too.

Super A,
Everything else looks OK.
Both keys will be renewed.
The bearing ST 288, could be re-used, but I will likely replace it.
The shaft bushing is not worn and the shaft fits in there nice and snug.
To my eye, there is little, to no wear on that gear.

Looks good Ed :{_}: I did something wrong when I went through the steering on my 130 and it loosened up. I am also thinking of putting power steering on it like Steve B did on his loader cub.
