Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! What is model number? What size? 825? diesel or gas ? Has rack and pinon steering? No power steering? If you raise front of unit, are the wheels free in the front spindles? Or could one be binding in the spindle upright? If no binding in the front wheels, you need to remove the steering linkage from the rack end of the linkage and with steering wheel and rack, turn the unit to see if the rack is binding. It can be bent, or have gear damage.
