If it's rack & pinion steering I guess the left side of the rack is stripped.

Price out a new rack before you lift a wrench in case the mower is old and the repair/replace decision is a close one.

I guess you aren't going to be able to run that in any Nascar races.


Do you have hydraulic or mechanical steering?

Look underneath the tractor. Is there a pinon and "sector gear"?

Probably the sector gear is missing some teeth.

Should be fairly easy to replace.

Turn your blades around backwards and cut a chute on the left side of your deck and mow in circles. Ha just kidding. You may just have a pin missing or something simple. That is not a mishap I have heard of before.
