 Steering tie rod

I bought a used Yanmar 1500D tractor. The steering tie rod on the lower left side is slightly bent towards the engine wall. Can anyone tell me if this is how it suppose to be or is it suppose to be straight. If I replace it how do I remove it?

 Steering tie rod

There will be many minor quirks with a used tractor.

If all sheet metal really straight the rod probably suppose to be bent to keep the tie rod ends as straight as possible going into the knuckles.

Does the steering turn L-R no binding, rod not hit anything, steering smooth? If no problems mechanically I'd leave alone. These are not high precision machines. Or are you restoring it to new mint original condition?

The steering seems to be OK. I am trying to retore it to original mint condition. I have bought a few items to take it in that direction....It appears to be a good operating machine..easy to start, etc.

I not know if should be bent or not.

I'd look at the angle of the tie rod end to the knuckle its attached to. I it is square to it I would leave it alone.

But that's me. Not fix if it not broke.

Good luck with the restoration post a picture.
