A friend has an old craftsman, it starting giving her trouble last summer with the steering I fixed it properly in that i bought the replacement parts that were broke and put it back together the way it was. It worked for awhile but broke down again. The main problem was was the the steering column rod was slipping off the sector gear and making steering difficult. A new sector gear and column would be anywhere from $60 to $100 depending on where you wanted to get it from. Anyway, I did some thinkin' for bit and devised a little fab part that really does the trick. Thought Id share it, it might give guys some ideas if are having similar issues.

Looks to be the solution to a problem caused by planned obsolescence.

Thank you.
