The gear on bottom end of the steering shaft stripped out because the front steering gear assembly became loose
No one would want to approach this repair as I did. I tried to do it without disassembling the entire steering console, however, eventually I disassemble it and things began moving quickly. I had a really hard time getting the bolt out of the bottom of the steering shaft and had to buy an impact driver to get it out.

Steering shaft gear got worn down and had to replace
I had to take off the deck and the transmission pulley gear to get a sawzall in to remove the screw holding the steering shaft to the frame. After this, I had to take apart the console to remove the shaft and gear. Parts were perfect and and replacement was quick. Greatly assisted by the schematics on the site.

Steering components worn. Nine years old.
Removing the old steering parts was no difficult. Getting some parts was a bit tight behind the engine. Had the tractor on jack stands so I could get under it. Downloaded the parts diagram and used it to reinstall the parts once they arrived. Centered the front wheels and steering wheel, tightened all parts and finished.

Steering gear broke off due to worn parts
R and R steering gear, ordered linkage and lock nut due to linkage being wallered out also. Easy fix for DIYers, save lots a money by ordering parts and DIY. I'm gonna go ahead and replace on other tractor too, has same symptoms, but gonna disassemble first and order all parts at one time.

Steering column gear stripped, front axles worn our bushings
Taking everything off to get to the gear assembly including moving gas tank, top of dash, dropping the front of the deck, removing front tires...After fighting with the phillips screw at the bottom of steering shaft for an hour finally had to use torch to heat it then use the 1/2" impact to break it loose...If you follow your exploded parts list and not lose any parts this repair is just time consuming but is not that hard...
