I'm trying to take a steering column of my MF 12G. I trying not to take the dash tower and dash. But thats not working out to well and i was wondering if any of you guys had this experience before.

I went out and took a look at my AMF 1010. It looks like it will slide right out after you unbolt it, but you might need to raise the front of the tractor to slide it out underneath. Where are you having a problem? The rubber grommet around the column?

Def. might need a gear puller to get the wheel off if it's trouble

Do you have the steering wheel off?

My dad a i took the steering wheel off. The rubber is not in the way because when i bought it it was not on. But i have a new steering collum with the rubber on because the old one is shot. I know where to unbolt it, it's just a problem of getting in there to get to the bolts.

Yep. They do look like a pain to get at. Are you going at it from underneath or up top?

It will come out, but it is tight, I removed the one from my MF10G.

Yes, it's tight in there.

It would be much easier, if you got the dash out of the way.

Afterall, that's half the fun of it. Using all the tools.

I think the general consensus would be dash removal versus anything else. They usually have some cracking around the bolts holding it to the tower anyways and this will give you the opportunity to repair them and /or put in bigger washers to make sure things don't get worse.

I took mine apart cleaned everything, put it all back together and didn't spend a dime on it. All it really needed was a good cleaning and reassembly.

I did true up the adjuster screw on the grinder a bit.

Well when i bought it the guy had a spare for it because its actually pretty bad. He wanted to sell it because he had to replace a lot of things on it, witch i already did. All i need to do is replace the steering column and it should be a solid tractor.
