    8340 steering trouble

    got an 8340 comin in tomorrow, its lost its steering completly, it was due to come in on monday anyway for new seals in rams and pins n bushes doing. it was wondering about on the road, when you reached the end of travel on the rams you could still turn the steering wheel slowly, i thought was suggestive of a leaking seal??? anyway tonight it has lost steering alltogether, driver said there was strange thud/noise from under dash and now all is lost , steering wheel just turns and has no effect at all. i now think possibly orbital unit at fault , but i wondered if anyone else has had the same issue , or could lodge there opinion

    Had another make of tractor doing similar, steering wheel just turning round. The splined coupling between column and orbital had worn through!!!!

    looking on new holland parts it looks to have a roll pin that hold the column to the steering unit, maybe this has sheared, saying that you would have thought it would have spline too?
