So to try and explain this, steering works fine, most of the time, however sometimes I have to jerk the wheel to make it work. any Ideas. IE I was planting some soybeans today and trying to adjust a little to the left or right and nothing would happen until I jerked the wheel and then it would start to work again. I am a little confused. also when I just parked it, if I turn the wheel slow enough the steering doesn't work, I was able to turn the wheel round and round very slowly without the wheels turning at all. if I turn the steering a little faster it seems to work just perfect. Thanks in advance for suggestions

Sounds like the steering thingy (actuator?) box in the dash is on the way out. Have had 2 766's over the years did the same.

My old 1566 did the same the other day but it turned out to be just low trans oil, she's never had a hydraulic prob. before but then its never lost oil before...turned out an implement ram had a very bad leak and I hadn't notice as I was ploughing at night.

Oh and if it is the "actuator?" make sure you take note of the correct piping sequence...first one we did we got mixed up and she started steer herself on start up.

The 66's weren't bad old tractors in there day...had 3 so far and driven a few others over the years.

Good luck with it all.

Pull the plug out the bottom of the MCV , then start the tractor just long enough to blow the steering releif valve out the bottom. Put a new oring on the valve , then clamp the valve in the vise and be careful not to damage it , then turn the flat blade screw in until you can see two threads , then center punch the side so the screw won't move.
The oring end of the valve goes in first when you put it back in the MCV, make sure the spindles are greased good so the front end turn easy, if this doesn't fix it you will need to remove the hand pump and get a used one or have someone fix it that knows what there doing.

Hope this helps , Danny

Given the multitude of possible prob's it might be combined with your lack of familiarity and confidences about the issue it's prolly best to take Danny's advice and "have someone fix it that knows what there doing."

The actuator that farmer123 is referring to is called a "Hand Pump" and yes its below the steering wheel.

The hand pump on my 1456 leaks. I believe the fix for this has been noted on here before but I was unable to find it. Could someone provide the details for me?
Thanks,
Travis

You can pull your steering wheel off and if it's just leaking oil out around the shaft there is a seal kit you can get and it can be replaced in the tractor. If you have tilt wheel it is a little harder so if you need more help let us know.

Good Luck Danny

changed the hand pump, and it seems pretty much fixed, 100 times better than before, however it still leaks down, where after the engine is shut off if I try to move the steering wheel, back and forth after a few trys It will start to turn a little more and a little more, and I noticed the front steering cylinder is leaking pretty badly now around the bolts that attach it to the front end, before it was a few drips, so I am going to replace that and hopefully the problem will be fully cured. then hopefully I can just use the tractor for a while. I am thinking that a lot of these problems are from sitting, as on the air filter it read changed at 4900 hrs, in 1998, and now it has 5021
