A little too much steering on an mtd Empty
PostSubject: A little too much steering on an mtd   A little too much steering on an mtd Icon_minitimeThu Apr 18, 2013 5:02 am

Okay so i have my white (profile pic) and its fun to play with, but if you go to 100% on either side the wheels turn parallel to the arm and lock. ive recently done a pulley swap and think this would end badly if it did this when going 20 or so mph, any ideas?

I think Strech and his gang (Yes, I said gang) have stoppers welded in somewhere in their steering system so he would be the one to talk to on where to put one.

As everyone else said, steering stops.

My Craftsman has them on the tie rod arms stock.

You want them on the spindles, less strain on the linkages. They are default on the JD that way. Welded nuts and bolts, horizontally so they can be adjusted.

Its not on the tie rod itself, its on the arm the tie rod mounts on.

You mean Spindle? Tie rod is something else. aka linkage. And yeah I mean the spindle arm. Like Stretch and 'his gang' posted in the picture.
