How can I replace the spur gear on the bottom of the steering shaft of
my lawn tractor. I've got the shaft apart except for the two bushings
that carry the shaft through the horizontal plate that supports the
steering mechanism. To get the shaft out requires getting the
bushings out, but how? Do I squeeze them? Is there a groove in the
shaft such that I must expand the bushings? John Deere told me to
talk to the local dealer but he wants to sell me an $80 transport,
service at $100/hour and the expensive parts. I can't afford any more
than the parts! Please advise.
