It will turn to the right but when trying turn to the left the whole steering almost twist out. What do yall think is the cause of it ? I haven't got to look at it because it stuck in the field cause of the steering I really hate being out in the weather.

My 102 had major steering issues when I dug into it finally. Turned out the steering column needed some adjustable fasteners snugged up. Of course to do that easily one must remove it to the see it. When I did it all came apart because mine was worn out. Undo two bolts and the draglink and the steering column drops out the bottom with the steering wheel off. If need be I have one out of a JD 210 that should fit fine.
Here is a picture of my steering column removal setup. (next post)

The steering wheel on my Cub Cadet came off of said JD 210 as my original was junk.

Could be perfect time to do it. I also rethreaded my draglink to make it shorter to make the steering radius the same both left and right.

When I pulled the steering column in my Cadet I made sure the other I had was ready to go in, but my column had bigger issues. If you are interested the JD210 is a parts tractor.

Rule one, when the real one is over 50 bucks, and you have one that fits and works, grab it and use it. Besides, no one collects them John Deeres anymore, Cub Cadets are where it's at. :D

Ps: Troy will appreciate that comment. :poke:

Sounds like the top bearing fell apart.They are pretty simple to rebuild.Only hard thing is getting the wheel off without ruining it.

 

The Kits are really expensive on Ebay.The price is almost laughable.

You might be able to just replace the 2 bearings and races if the rest of the parts look OK.
