I recently bought a 1970 Sears compact serial #917-25480 at an auction. It's been sitting outside for a long time, but I feel I can get it running again. My problem is as you turn steering wheel it will slip and you can turn it all the way and it will slip outside steering gears. It looks like gear on bottom of steering shaft is worn down. I doubt there is any way to adjust or fix except to replace sttering shaft. Does anyone know where I can get a steering shaft? Do you know of any other lawn tractor that used same steering gear? I'd appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thank you
