bontai Joe Your tractor has power steering, and it sounds a lot like you have a blown seal in the steering system. I don't understand why it would be hard to diagnose.
Robret Horn Same thing happened to me in summer 09. Blown seal in steering is the problem. New seal kit fixed it. Steering mechanism is easy to get to for removal but complex internally. New unit is astronomically priced, so is a used one. I recommend rebuilding your own, seal kit was $80 so take your time. Mine had more friction in the play than was recommended so I rechecked mine several times but it works great!
