The steering on my new MF14 is kinda sloppy and I was wondering if anyone had used one of these and if it helps.

All it does it put the drag link closer to the pivot point, thus making the steering not as heavy. It will however require more turns of the steering wheel to go from lock to lock. Most Massey's are 2 1/2 turns full left to full right, so you'd expect at least 3 turns after this kit. You could do this yourself, but the kit certainly would be easier I suppose. It will not however solve any problems inside the steering gearbox. If you need to take the column out to repair any inner problem, then you could make your own kit by just welding on a plate.

Thanks there OCH, I wasn't for sure what it did. I'm thinking that when I get around to painting TH 14 and everything I'll have to look at the steering box. First comes finishing up the house to make my little bride happy........then it'S PLAY TIME.

10-4 on what Daniel said.
Just getting back about your location "Ding Dong" TX.
Had to Map Quest that one and you do exist.:bigrofl:
Awhile back there was an 1855 Massey just east of Austin. Check it out it's a whole lot closer to you than Wisconsin.
This was almost a month ago and if I remember right he was aski9ng $350.00.
That's reasonable depending on condition.
I was so close to taking a ride.:confuse:

Thanks Ducky, I'll try and locate that one. Yep, I be here. I really live between Holland and Salado but it sounds better being 20 miles east of Ding Dong. My daughter lives in Cut & Shoot which is down near Houston.
