Folks: I have owned a Bolens articulating mower for over 25 years. As most of you know, these were made my Stiga. Mine has a label on it saying it is a model 944. It is the 5 speed model (not hydrostatic.). Attached is the owners manual that I got with the machine (excuse the scribbling on the cover). Over the years I have managed to find replacement parts with not too much difficulty to keep the unit running in good order. But now I am stumped. I need a parts diagram of the steering assembly and will need what I believe are bearings at the top and the bottom of the steering shaft. But I don't know for sure and I don't like taking things a part unless I have spares on hand. Plus I use this unit regularly.
Can anyone advise where I can obtain a parts diagram and source the steering parts. Alternately if someone has done this repair and can explain how they accomplished it, that would be a big help as well.
Thanks in advance to all that respond.
