oliver 550 Steering problems

peggy when i drive my tractor the front tires would clunk bad. I checked the rims, etc and it wasn't coming from there. I also noticed that when I turned one wheel would turn more than the other so if you looked at the front of the tractor you would see one wheel pointing left or right more than the other. I think the clunking noise and the steering out of whack is coming from the steering box. Any suggestions???
Chris Peggy, you need to jack up the front end of the tractor to get both wheels off the ground and place on jackstands. Once stable, grab the tire on top and bottom, rocking it back and forth. You
are checking for "slop" in king pins & bushings.
I am doing some work for a man now with a Super55
that has worn out king pins/bushings - looks ok when driving forward, but in reverse it is very pigeon-toed.
