Hey all, longish time away, but here I am again...
Finally got my triple spool valve done and am able to run a power angle front blade now.
Also finally got it running right. Turns out a vacuum fuel pump and a quality 3 ohm, hot coil really perked it up.
So, on to the crappy steering, even after I did a basic box rebuild.
I'd like to add thrust bearings to the spindles, steering cam follower, and inside the steering box. I plan on installing a wheel bearing in the top of the column.
Can anyone help with a few part numbers or specs for the thrust bearings I need?

I did this ..... not only to my MF1655 but 3-4 wheel horses. Dont have part nos but Mc Master has them (crap, they got everything!)

I thought the bearings on the spindles did the most .....

Don't forget the thrust washer on both side of the thrust bearings on the spindles. When I did my 1512 Cub I had a machine shop mill the bottom of the spindle to allow for the washers and thrust bearing. Found the axle and spindle were not matching up from the start and had to hand machine the axle to get it to lay flat with the spindle. Might be something you want to check.
