    I have a 44" Proline WB, while using it the other day, it would not turn to the left, it turns to the right. It looks like the bearings are worn out. Am I right or is it something else?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    is it hydro or belt driven?

    Check for propper belt tension if thats what you got.

    Cant help you on hydro cuz im new to that myself.

    Does anyone have any ideas of what could be wrong? I purchased the pin for the shat area, but so far that has not resolved the problem.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hmmm, I just started work on a unit like this today. Do you mean it isn't driving on the right side ? There are two couplers one on each side of the trans. that connects the axles, They are known to strip out and slip causing one side not to drive therefore no turn. Also the lining on the brake band may be worn enough to need adjusting in which there is a adjustment on the rod going down to the brake band.

    Maybe this will help !
