I wonder if they make a repair kit for the steering shaft for the Quiet Lines, do you have to rebuild the whole shaft or can you but the bushing grommet in the top? Mike

Are you speaking of the plastic bushing hat slips into the top of column tube that the shaft turns in? You can always ream the worn hole in OE plastic, just enough to allow pressing a brass/bronze bushing into it tight.

Thats where itseems loose up top, very little play in the steering, the top of the column wobbles. I'll try the brass grommet, Thanks

Mike, Lowe's has a flanged bushing that works perfect. Let the flange sit on top & then it cannot drop or move out of place. I've cut new bushings from aluminum on my lathe, then install the bushing into it for long life.

Hey Johnny, welcome to the group, man it's GREAT to have a cub guy like you here. For those who don't know John, he is from Copan, Oklahoma, and he has one of the biggest collection of pre 1980 Cub Cadets I have ever seen. I actually bought my very first GT from him January '09, it was a restored 1965 JD110, he wasn't a big green machine fan with all the yellow and white sitting around, but I liked the darn thing, and he made me a GREAT deal. I sure wish I still had it. I'll be up to see you soon John.
