Steering on my L175 is awful. There is too much play so it takes nearly a full rotation of the stearing wheel to change direction. The tractor just wanders where it wants.

I replaced a broken part in the steering box a few years ago. Is it possible that I reassembled it wrong?

I ran into two trees yesterday, pretty hard on tractor, trees, and driver.

Likely on reassembly you failed to pay attention to the two necessary adjustments using different thickness shims.

Shims #9 to control the up and down movement of the steering wheel and shaft, Shim #22 to control the play in the sector shaft.

Study the attached WSM page.
