I see it is almost 2 months since my inquiry here, I got lucky short term ,at some point the nut on the steering shaft must have come loose and it was run that way until the arm and shaft wore loose enough it was parked . The key was cut in half.
I did a MacGyver fix with a new key and 2 full tubes of J B Weld and gave it 48 hours before I touched it. Once I actually drove it again I discovered I need at least 2 new tie rod ends.
I got it to town for the parade but probably shouldn't have because one chamber on the float is cracked and eventually flooded to bad to run.
Don't grill me about the date ,everytime I start my trail camera I forget to correct the date.
