I was mowing and the steering kept hanging up. I was getting ready to park and I didn't have any steering. The wheel just spins. At first I thought maybe the u joint broke or came apart but it is fine.
Would it be the worm gear or the bearing that holds the shaft the worm gear is on? Does anyone have any idea?

Dose it Factory power steering, if so remove the bottom cover on the control valve and adjust the centering screw

So the shaft spins all the way into the pedestal? There is a roll pin that holds the worm gear to the shaft. I would guess that has fallen out. You can take the cover off and try to see it. Looks like you'd have to pull the shaft to get the pin back on, it's on the rear of the worm gear.

That's what I'm hoping from the way it was acting. I won't be able to look at it till this weekend probably.

Tricycle front wheels?? Probably sheared the vertical key down between the front wheels from the setscrew being loose.

The steering was ?hanging up? on the roll pin that was on its
way out next to the engine/frame rail. Now it has worked out
enough to have disengaged the shaft. Or fallen out
completely.
Happened on our WD years ago.

Got a chance to take a closer look tonight. Thankfully it's the pin in the u joint. What size pin or bolt goes in there? Is it something special or just a regular bolt?

Easy way to figure it out is take a bolt say a 5/16 and see if it fits. If it does and is close to being tight then you need a 5/16 roll pin. I know many people are not like me but I keep extra bolts laying around so I can fix things with out having to leave the farm. I buy bolts by the pound and when I think I am running low I buy a few pounds just to have them on hand. If I remember right I have a 5/16 bolt in the steering U-Joint of my W Speed Patrol

It takes a 3/8" pin or bolt. We were all given inaccurate information. The poster said it turned "all the way to the gearbox" and that was not true.
