Hey all,

I just got a straight, 1650 (looks like it's a '66) and noticed on the drive home that the steering wanders. In the course of a mile or so you probably do 1 or 2 complete revolutions of the steering wheel to the left to keep it going straight.

At the moment, besides needing a seat and a muffler, that's about the most annoying thing I want to dig into

Is this a leak in the steering box?

That does seem excessive, but I notice
that on mine also when driving down the
road. In the field I never even think
about it. I believe parts are available to
convert to the char-lynn style steering
motor under the dash. Pricey but may fix
the issue.

Odd that it's all one direction. Wouldn't hurt to check the toe-in.

It's most likely the hydra motor. No parts available to rebuild them, just have to find a good replacement or live with it. A lot
of combines of that vintage used the same hydra motor.

Our 1650 did the same. Always had to do a steady slow crank to the left to keep it going in a straight
line. One of my 1850's was doing that but to a lesser degree but suddenly the steering became dead when
driving up steep hills and was locking. One of the chaps here on this website suggested that I clean out the flow
divider block which regulates the flow of fluid to the steering. I found a small distorted light piece of
round metal and a half inch long metal shard in the block. Cleaned the block out and the 1850 steers much
better. Now if I could only find time to rebuild the leaky steering cylinder under the radiator.....

Any way to verify? It is a NF, and outside of odd jobs/wagon duty around the farm, I'm probably going to paint it up and use it for tractor rides, so, thats why it's a bit annoying Smile.

I see someone indicated checking the flow divider, can do that too.

Thanks folks,

J

FIRST..Clean the flow divider and install a new hyd filter. You may find bits of silver in the flow divider from a collapsed filter. Those are the easiest and cheapest first things you can do. Good luck..

You are going to have a little internal leakage.

My 1850 has been doing that for the 35 years I've had it. Don't notice it in the field, on the road it's about like you describe. So far it's still going. Knocking on wood as I write this.
