I just purchased my first Wheel Horse. It is a 1979 C141. I am looking for the upper and lower steering because the gears are stripped out. Can I replace these with other models? Any help is much appreciated.

They are compatible with many models. How much of the steering assembly do you need? Here is a picture of the parts diagram:

Unless something is broken, most of the slop in the steering can be adjusted out by the use of shims between the back of the steering support (19) and the pin that hold the lower shaft. Other areas that can cause slop are the tie rod ends and loose nuts and bolts.

The Gear on 25 has alot of wear and in 19 it is oval shaped. The teeth on 15 is in good shape. I am new to doing this kind of stuff and am finding when I do a search on the c141 I'am limited to parts. That is wy I'am wondering if parts are interchangable. Thanks

Those parts are interchangeable with many models, however, with the steering wheel having been on that shaft for 32 years, getting it off is going to be your biggest problem. Some guys have cut the bottom portion of the upper steering rod and welded a good gear section on when they could not get the steering wheel off. You may be lucky though and have it come off with little effort.

I, along with many other Wheel Horse guys probably have everything you need. Where are you located?

I am located in Flint, Michigan area. I have the steering taken apart with alot of dismantling. It is also the original. I was able to get the tracor from a 89 year old guy who is the original owner. He parked it in his garage 4 years ago when the steering went and purchased a new one. Thanks also far for all the help with my questions, its much appreciated.

One way to get the steering wheel off, if you have a press, know someone who does, or aren't afraid to pay for it, is to take the steering wheel, shaft, and hood stand still on it, put the assembly into a press, and press the shaft out of the wheel. Shearing the roll pin if it's still in there. Once apart, you can get the roll pin, now in three pieces, out easily.

I wish I had a press... :lol:
