Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Agco parts book, the steering rack has a plug in the top. My question is how to get the plug out ??????

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Agriculture Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

A cup plug on top of the center housing? You take pointed tool and punch a hole in it and pry it out, you can find a replacement at any auto supply store with the old one to match it up.

I thought by submitting the rating indicated I had received your response and rated it as well... anyway, I have a follow up question. The rack gears appear to run in grease, not oil. Is this correct ??? If so, what kind of grease should I add and how much ????
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Use 80-90 gear oil.

ok, how much, to the top of the rack ?? and should I try to wipe out all of the grease that's in it ??
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

f it had grease in it, I would add more grease and not the oil. The grease will not have the tendency to leak as the oil would, The ends , with the pistons use hydraulic oil to push one piston while the other returns. SO you have a manual gear set in the middle with the rack, worked by hydraulics on each end.
