MF165 (excessive play in steering)

Robert Cleland I have just purchased a used 165, It has a power steering cylinder bolted on the front shaft and there is a large amount of play(movement)in the steering, which seems to be coming from this area! Is there someone who has experienced a similar problem and has any suggestions on how to repair this? Thank you

norman nadeau I just recently bought a 210-4 with similar play //the outer tie rod ends are loose with play and the shaft coming out of the box has some shaft play which is a worn pin //some play is good however replace those tie rod ends and you will pick upcome slack
Alan Lewis A couple of problems here,
1.very few people grease thease items, only after the expensive job of repair do they realise there are grease nipples around this area.
2.If there is a lot of ware in the vertical pin and the unit on top which actuats the spool valve you will have to replace theas items which involve removing the old bushes fitting new and reaming the replasment bushes (special tools here) a new pin will proberbly be required and the actuator plus there is a taper pin and lock lock nut which is also worn then coms the link to the spool valve, yet more expence.
3.If you are very lucky the taper pin may have slackend off to adjust this slacken lock nut screw the taper pin in all the way untill solid then back off three to three and a half turns and lock the lock nut, you may still have to adjust the link to the spool valve but it is worth a try anyway.
