Ok Scott, to see if adjusting will snug up that play, first unlock the 2 large nuts on the cross shaft, then run the one next to the housing in until it snugs, then back it up until the shaft just moves freely.  Hold the inner nut steady while you lock the outer nut against it.  Check for decreased play.  Now you likely still have play, so move to the slotted cam follower with the locknut on the round disc.  Unlock the nut, then turn the slotted stub CW to turn it further in.  1/4 turn may do a LOT, as the follower on it's end will have flat spots worn in it, so turning it 1/4 a turn will put new surfaces against the worm gear on the steering shaft.  If the 1/4 a turn still leaves a lot of play, try another 1/2 turn, which will put it on another unworn spot.  Keep trying until it gets to be harder to turn, then back out till it is free.  Be warned, when doing this when wheels are straight, the steering may get tight when full right or left.  This is because usually the worm will be more worn in it's center area, so if it tightens on full lock, you will have to back off the follower stub until full lock works smoothly.  If this is the case, then what play you have near centered you will have to live with, or rebuild the entire unit.

Scott, Both of my JB's have the same steering gearbox and mount. They are different the yours. We need photos of Daniel's 3 that he has and see if he has one of each.

Mine are just like yours Brian.  Well, one now has power steering instead, but the same design steering mount with the box top over the gearbox.

What is Scott's serial number? Maybe his is the latest of all these and BH changed vendors on the gearboxes?

His must be an early model like my JBI in original trim, and it's only about 80 units from mine.   Both have hoods without the notch in the hood for air filter clearance.

Will check it tomorrow, but I think I got the steering situation taken care of. It was slipping on the shaft that comes out of the gear box.....also had to turn the adjustment screw the 1/4 turn......when I have time, I want to pull the arm off that shaft....looks like it may have a woodruff key in it and may have an issue there.....I mean I tightened that nut 20 times before it finally got tight enough to keep it from moving. Once I get it out and running around, I will know if it is fixed....thanks for the info.

I stay confused!  So Brian, without going back & looking, your hood doesn't have a cutout for the air filter?

No, neither of my hoods have a cutout for the air filter.

Any of you Bush Hog guys ever seen a JB with an original set of ag tires on the back?? It was an option, but I have never seen any with them?? Wondering if they were Goodyear terra's or something else?? I have that set of the GY terra's on the shelf and debating on putting them on the JB instead of the current Carlisle's. May not want to make the change if the GY were not original.

Well going through some of my Bush Hog paperwork late last night and found a tire specs sheet that showed that the part number for the HW-12 (wide tires) ag tires and the part number for the JB ag tires is the same number. Since the HW-12 came with Goodyear Terra ags, you would have to presume the JB would have been as well. Daniel has an old post on a JB he saw at a tractor show with the Goodyear terra ags. That would pretty much confirm what was in the sheets. I hope Daniel does not mind that I copied his picture to show you what the ags look like on the JB.

I think they would look real good on there. I have 2 sets of those for the FF's.
