Yea, sounds like the bushings on the steering shaft where it meets the other gear are worn. This allows slop in the gears which can lead to jumping teeth. You can try to find replacement bushings and try to rebuild.

I would suggest your best bet is to go to sears parts direct, type in your model number, then find the steering sector gear assembly. Either buy it from sears if they have it or use part numbers and find them probably cheaper on ebay.

Bad part on these, you have to tear half the tractor apart to get to the gears, dash, battery tray, etc all have to come off just to get to the assembly.

I have a complete steering gear assembly off of a newer lawn tractor that's still good. If it would interchange and work I'd be willing to part with it...

What model is it from? I can see if it will interchange with that.

Sorry about the delay guys, got home a lot later than expected. Kenny, it's an LT 1000 (one of the dark gray era models) but I can't find a serial number on the frame anywhere. If it's necessary maybe you can point me towards where to look for it? Here's a couple pics of the gear in case that helps...

Sears parts won't pull up LT 1000. I would need the 917? # off it. Maybe tractorguy2 will see this and let us know if it looks like his!

Kenny I can't find another number anywhere on the frame or body. Do you know where the 917... number would be?

Take a gander at this thread, this guy rebuilt his, but it has pics showing the assemblies torn apart. They were pretty much same parts late 80's through late 90's.

Like most Sears, it was probably under the seat on a decal that is long gone.

I can't say whether any of this will work. All these steering parts are different from the tractors I have.

Thanks. That is totally different than his. It's also different than a GT18.
