Any one have a steering pinion gear (located at the bottom of the steering shaft - engages the sector gear) on a junk tractor they'd be willing to part with? I managed to strip mine.

Here's a photo of the part:

I'll attach a photo of the old Craftsman below.

Thanks in advance!

If you can find out who made it for sears might be easier to find the part. Being that old i would say MTD or Murray made it someone should be able to tell by the model #.

The best I can tell, the tractor's model # is 502.254970

The part description is 'Pinion Gear' - Part # is 92007.
It was superceded by the 'kit' which also includes the sector gear (and something else, not listed) part # 402075.

Thx!

Hi
You could weld them up and grind or file to shape. It looks like you could also change the spacing and run on a good part of the gear.

Thanks for the link Jody! Unless I find a good used, that looks like the way I'll have to go.

Argee- Thanks for taking the time to look at it for me!

Rodster- Welding... that's an idea. I'll have my bro-in-law look at it.
re: spacing- the pinion gear is captured between a lower bronze bushing & the upper locator plate. No way to space up the sector gear either. So, no way effectively run it on a good part of the gear.

Thanks for all the responses guys!!

My father-in-law evidently knows a guy with a $hit pile of old mowers, so maybe I'll have some luck there. If not, it looks like I'll be ordering a whole steering assembly from www.outdoordistributors.com (the link that Jody posted).

Hey CatDaddy did you find the part you was looking for:question: Did the guy have the part or you haven't been there to find out:question:

Jody, Haven't been out there yet. It rained last weekend, so I stayed around the house & worked on my 'Honey-do' list. Since school's out it's kinda tough going anywhere since it requires taking the little ones along. I'm hoping to get out there this weekend after I mow (again).

Thanks for asking tho'!
Angel

p.s. I visited the GW forum. It gets kinda squirrelly over there.

How much do you make?
What kind of underwear do you wear when you mow?
What kind of hat do you wear when you mow?

I joined in on some of the foolishness, but it's still kind of weird.:stupid:

The bbs software you guys use is infinitely superior to theirs!:cheers:

BBS software? That brings back memories.... RBBS, WWIV, Galaticomm! :D

Yeah well this forum software has been basically recoded almost completely! We are running so many mods and custom parts, it is simply cRaZy. :D

Yeah saw the "How much you make? thread and How much tractor can you afford based upon that? --- Very strange posts there sometimes.... WOW. :D

CatDaddy, haven't forgot about the part. Going to find out more tomorrow when I meet with friend of mine. Hope he has some leads on that part or perhaps an extra one you can use.
