Default Leader tractor steering

Hello from Lurkville, guys (waving from back over there in the corner). Haven't been on here in a while. Glad to hear the Cutter is better. Keep it up.
Anybody know the Leader tractor brand? I need to find or fix a steering gear thats frozen on a sector(?) shaft. (mandatory photo supplied)
Got the dirty damn shaft welded, but can't get the worm(?) gear to turn on the splined shaft, if it does. Looks like it would not absolutely have to turn to work, but I suspect it'd be an easier thing if it did.
Thanks.
Little

That appears to be a bit of an unusual design given that the sector gear is a full circle instead just a portion of an arc. Allowing the gear to turn on the pin probably makes it a little easier to steer as compared to a fixed gear. It will also distribute wear better.

How is the sector gear attached to the shaft? Looks like there's a pin through the yoke and the gear. If you can remove the pin everything should free up. At least I think that's the key...

"If you can remove the pin everything should free up"


That's the theory I'm working on. I'm a little afraid of the press. Going to try a little hot wrench first. I'd rather find a (nonexistant) replacement.
