 Steering Rod Protector

The other day while bush hogging I noticed that the plate that protects the steering rod down by my feet had come loose. Apparently, the rod pushes against it which finally caused the brackets to bend off. before I bought this tractor the owner replaced this rod which his wife had apparently broken. The steering works fine (I am pretty confident there is NOT power steering). I am wondering if this should concern me and if I should bother replacing this cover.

 Steering Rod Protector

Without knowing the tractor, The rod sounds lift the pitman arm, which comes off the steering sector and connects to a drag link that goes forward to the tie-rods. I'm taking a guess that the purpose of the shield is to protect operators' feet rather than the steering arms. The construction doesn't sound heavy enough for a brush guard. There probably is some potential for getting a foot caught in the mechanism while turning. If so, I wouldn't underestimate the safety hazard. Operating a tractor takes a lot of concentration. Feet and hands can end up in all sorts of places without a person realizing it. If you have PS you probably can hear a hydraulics sound while turning. It sounds something like a relief valve but softer. Any hydraulic lines going to the steering sector indicates power steering. Likewise, any device in the high-pressure line that connects to two large and one small line indicates is either the system relief valve or the PS priority valve (PS on some tractors is driven from a 2nd pump rather than a priority valve). The system relief valve can be identified, because the small line runs directly to the sump in the TX/DIFF cases. Any priority valve would be located between the relief valve and the pump. Mine is located on the bottom of the pump and may appear as part of the pump. It helps to have a repair manual to sort some of this stuff out, and eventually you need one to do almost any tinkering.
