Sears 917.276813 Axle/Front end Trouble...

Ok, got the engine running great with a carb replacement ($70.00 from Briggs and Stratton)... Mowed the entire lawn (1.5 acres) and the last cut around an oak tree I caught the front right tire on the outside edge of the tree!!! Dag nab it!!

The right front tire has play in it when turning the wheel and will not go to full turn. When you look at the front view of the tractor the right front tire is pointing about 10 degrees more to the left than the opposite tire! I can not tell by looking at the front end parts if anything is bent or not.

Any thoughts?

I have just about had it with this tractor. I am now thinking about upgrading from this TOY tractor to a Big Boy tractor!!!

Front end

Figured it out...

The tie rod was bent! Straightened in the vise and it worked just fine. Ordered a new one online at searspartsdirect.com ($13.00 or so).

Just wanted to update everyone.
