    Badly worn steering components, my guess is from constanat use in 4wd. It uses a hyd pump for steering, and the end of the shaft is threaded into a pivot point on the frame. It pulled out, and trashed the threads on the pivot point. I was origionally looking for someone that had access to Kubota parts online, but the dealer faxed some info to me. Can you tell from my pictures if the threads on the shaft are still ok?

    Mainly from the damage the set screws caused? I figured if cleaned up that would be ok, seeing how its in the middle of the threaded area. I ended up ordering just about every component for the steering.

    if the threads on the shaft are rounded I would definitly replace it. you can probly get the cylinder rebuilt if the threads are on the ram. its cheaper than buying new. I have done it quite a bit on some of my older equipment. from what you describe it sounds like the 4wd was used a lot engaged on pavement with a load.

    I purchased everything from the tires in and to the pump, including the pump, just under 1k. Not bad considering it was all OEM Kubota stuff. Thanks for the input guys, getting it done tomorrow. Anyone need some like new L3010 steering parts?
