I found one of those on feebay for $29. The ID is wrong but everything else looks right. I can bore it out to .750 easier than I can cut new teeth. I took a chance on it and if it works out, I will take some pics and add it to my old thread about (not) welding it up and re cutting the teeth
I got the part yesterday. I got the rivets for the arm drilled out and removed. The shaft actually mics out to 7/8". The hole is 1/2" and this gear is hard as hell. The 7/8" drill wouldnt even scratch it and busted the cutter when trying to cut the hole on the lathe. Other than that... everything else should work
Here is a link to what I bought and part number for when someone is digging through old posts trying to find steering parts for an old FF
10-6887 AYP, Sears 102787X Steering Sector
I got the hole drilled out today. I bought a 7/8" carbide tipped concrete hammer drill bit and used it in a cheapy HF drill press. (here is a pic for the guys with the BS flags ready to fly)
The only problem was the 7/8 bit wasnt .875.. it was .900. In hind sight, I could have ground a few thou off the end of the carbide, but it needs to be welded any way. I may throw some shim stock or JB weld in to tighten it up before I weld it. The guy "did me a favor" by cutting out the old weld on the lathe without match marking the gear to the shaft, so I have to put it back in the tractor and clock the gear to the shaft with the steering centered before I can weld it back up.
