Speed and steering on my walker

My walker pulls to the left. I have adjusted the rods below at front of the mower.

Both the hydros have been replaced. the machine has alot of hrs on it, but everything works well for its age. Also have put it against a wall and seems to have ample power to turn tires.

Just wondering if there is anything that i can do?

Thanks any ideas or help would be appreciated

Walker pulling

Check your steering dampeners. They tend to wear out and affect the ability to get a good adjustment out of the rods. If the unit is pulling to the left, then more than likely, it is the right side that is the problem.

Measure the drive tire circumference. One tire may be stretched.

Also check the springs on the pumps. Mine has a spring on the arm of the pump that keeps tension. I highly doubt it is causing your problems but I know mine did right before it snapped on me.
