    Hello all,

    I am working on a 1975 John Deere 2130 that has loose steering. I have completely rebuilt the front bell end and removed all play in that section. The long drag link is solid and is fine. The heavy drop down linkage just inside the housing near the clutch that has tapered splines which goes on the end of the power steering shaft and connects down to the main drag link is worn and you can see the main power steering shaft turns a bit before it engages the other side of the splines on the heavy link. This causes about 4" of play at the front tie rod ends. I have purchased the new heavy link and am wondering how to replace it. If you remove the small round hole cover and remove the bolt, is there enough room between the end of the power steering shaft and the housing with the small round cover plate to pull the heavy link back and slide it out and down? I am hoping it is but don't know. If so, it will be easy to replace and just slide the new one up and in and secure it with the bolt to remove all this play in the steering.

    The tech manual does not mention how to do it either. My tractor is up in the bush and I want to ensure I have the right tools to tackle this before I head up to do it.

    Thanks!

    Jason

    No, not enough room.
    You have to remove the oval cover on the opposite side. There is a drain plug below the cover. It will have oil in it. Then you have to remove the pin that connects the steering column. This will let the shaft the steering arm is on slide to the right to remove the steering arm.

    Be sure to get a new gasket for the oval cover.

    In the drawing the oval cover/bearing support is key 1. The pin for the steering column is key 4. The shaft is key 7

    Thank you so much! Do you happen to know what I need to remove the pin? Is there a spring retainer? A bolt? Just wondering for tools needed.

    From the drawing, looks like key # 6 is a retainer

    The retainer is held in by bolt #15. You will need a 7/16" wrench or preferably a socket, ratchet and extension. The pin is threaded in the end. you can use one of the bolts attaching the oval cover and screw it into the end of the shaft to give you something to hold onto to pull it out.
