Pictures and Progress
This is the steering housing I was talking about.
The lift handle was not welded on like I though, it was held on the way it's suppose to be, 1 pin and a woodruff key. I guess I didn't look at it close enough.
Anyway the problem is still there, when I pull the handle back it goes all the way but when I push it forward it stops 3 notches before the end, the arm on the shaft that the handle moves hits the frame where the front of the trany mounts to. ???
Something is bent, wrong part, not made right, messed with,???
This is what I had to do to get the handle off the shaft, took over 1hr.
Tractor is down to a bare frame, and it's going in the etank today, only 1/2 will fit in so it will take 2 days.
The etank works really good at cleaning rust and the paint off the Bush Hog parts. Here's the hood fresh out of the etank and after washing it with the pressure washer.
Next step is cleaning, preparing all the parts for Paint, gonna take some time to get done.
