Famall H steering shake

Ken 1951 H
Have replaced the lower bushing, thrust bearing, on vertical steering shaft in front, u joint in steering shaft, carrier bushing on steering shaft, new tires and it still shakes when any faster than half throttle on the road. What do I do next to stop this?

Thanks
Ken

jim Sounds like bent rims or worn mounting holes throwing rims off center to me.
John M Have you checked the gears inside the front bolster, Ill assume you have since youve had the front end apart.
Ken Thanks John and Jim
Yes, at least by looking the gears seem fine. The front rim bolt holes are good with new bolts.
It is not as bad as before these improvements, but certainly not ready for a tractor ride.
Thanks
Ken

gbs assuming you have tricycle front end ,remove the gear housing cover, turn steering left to right enough to just move wheel's, watch the bolster shaft to see if the end play is excessive, if so the upper bolster shaft bushing is worn or shaft is worn so that a new bushing will not romove the end play, check splines also to make sure the gear doesn't move without moving shaft, also check clearence between worm gear and upper shaft gear, most of the time the upper shaft bushing is the problem, sometimes you lower the air pressure a little in one tire will help.
