My 104 steering was loosey-goosey. Bought knuckle assemble lh and steering arm assembly from Parts Tree. Installed them using a 3/8" x 2" x 24 hex bolt (tried a coarser thread but didn't fit through the holes), installed a Ross Steering upgrade kit from Corbeau-Customs on Ebay (you don't need to remove the steering box for this, just fit a wrench on the exiting nut on the side of the steering box from the right side of the tractor and then install the new parts. The steering is absolutely fine - as good as any new tractor I have. Funny thing - when I went to replace the wheel, the rim kept scraping the housing - tried over and over no good, finally I turned the wheel around so the valve stem was facing inside - wheel worked just fine. I looked on Youtube and saw that a number of the 100 series had the front left wheel installed that way - weird. Hope this will be of some help to anyone with steering issues.

Or it could be a wide frame rim.... If I remember correctly, the wider, narrow frame front rims get installed with the dish facing one way, and the wider, wide frame the dish is the other way, and the valve stems are on the outside for each.....
