Hi. Serviced new oil filter etc. Steering was 'playing up' on my first outing. Whole machine was knocking the guts out of me. Switched to my son's JD and it was like a RR. Will donate to my son-in law after a full service. One of the most frustrating jobs I have ever done pulling the steering box out - only to find, apart from some fine debris, everything appeared well. Cleaned thoroughly. Now some advice please! I have made an assumption that being a 'plastic' gear box, no grease is applied to the dogs. Lightly greased the 'O' ring with tap valve grease and applied a thin film to the bottom where the castellated base is screwed on which presumably keeps the Gear bevel wheel (slotted){ 13354 1.65} in good contact with the smaller bevel wheel that the steering wheel shaft connects to. Next - the hose clamp was found to be broken when overhaul was begun. This obviously clamps aroud the slotted section that protrudes from the gear box. An ordinary clamp width exceedes what protrudes from the box, then a washer and two spacers held on by grub screws. Are there measurements as to how much pressure they exert on the dog that drives the chain to the front??
With all the leaks fom Cabinet and the USA, can someone leak 'workshop' manuals for us poor peasants that want to keep our fingers and mind active and do the right thing by our workhorses? I think that a fine oxide film builds up over winter and greatly reduce traction when first called to use.
P.S. Love my son-in-law. Don't want it to be a punishment!
P.P.S. To other Cox users - do your service - and gently wipe the discs (with fine grade emery paper), that contact the 'clutch'

Hi -
Please be aware that the king pins get sticky and rusted - Best bet is to strip, clean and reassemble with liberal application of grease.
The steering chain also gets "tight spots" - best to remove and soak in solvent then lubricate with a dedicated chain lube.

The steering shaft below the wheel, just above the steering box could also use a spray of lube

Good luck - that steering box was not a great idea (in my humble opinion!)

Thanks DB. Will pull off the steering drive chain before reconnecting the steering box and do as you suggested. Will report back if I now have a RR! Cheers.
