Both radius rods on my 8N are bent upwards in the middle; one about 1", the other about 1-1/2". Can these be straightened? I know being bent affects the caster on the front spindle. Should I be concerned about the steering? Seems to turn one direction easier and faster than the other. Also, the axle assembly (center) is bent on one side, toward the rear, about 1/4", as it had been run into some immovable object. The outer axle castings are straight. Can this be straightened, or should I just adjust the steering to compensate? Tractors (in general) are new to me, and repairing this 8N is teaching me a lot about them. zuhnc
