Hey kevin==There is a valve in the gear that can stick. Also I have seen the bearings on the steering shaft that were so bad, the steering shaft was stiff. Also make sure the gear is adjusted properly/ GoodluckJoe

How do you estimate tree height?

You could always draw it out and do sin/cos/tan, but that's a little complex and you would need a protractor. You could estimate its height by comparing it to a building whose height you know.You can also hold a sick and move your legs, or the arm that is holding the stick, until the top of the stick seems to touch the top of the tree, and the bottom of the stick seems to touch the bottom of the tree. From there, you would swing the stick at a 90 degree angle and mark the point on the ground that the top of the stick seems to touch. Height of tree = distance from that point to the base of the tree.

You will find a power steering dip stick, where the stick is metal. It's about 12 inches long (Reminds me of the Oil Dip Stick). You actually add the power steering fluid where that metal dip stick was. It's a small hole so make sure you have a funnel that will fit in it. Also, make sure that you don't overfill it as it fills up pretty fast. Good luck!
