Not sure but you may have adjustable tie rods and turning one side in and the other out the same amount of turns should bring your steering back in line.

What side does the grass discharge from the deck. It  could be built that way if grass discharges on the right and use the left side for going tight around things like trees etc.

The easiest way to fix that is to unhook the linkage at the steering box, then run the box all the way to the left and then all the way to the right counting the turns and then turn it back half way. You will then be able to see how far of the linkage is from going back in the hole and you can adjust accordingly, make sure the front wheels are straight during this process and also note that you will most likely have to remove the steering wheel and straighten it since it will be off center.

My Massey is made that way because the right front tire would hit the pulley/belt on a full right turn and driving over a bump. Gene
