While mowing yesterday my steering suddenly gave out. I am now able to turn the steering wheel continuously in either direction without the front wheels following. The steering shaft is turning but the connecting arm on the left side does not track. I think the steering box/gear has stripped out.
Is it possible to make an adjustment to the steering box to tighten it back up, or does it need to be replaced or repaired? What do I need to remove to get to the steering box? Any advice appreciated.
