The roadmaster spring is intact, but it has slid about 6 inches to the left. So I'm going to take it off and see if it solves the problem. Thanks to everyone

Well, remove the RMSS and see if this fixes the problem. By your description, it sure sounds like there is a problem with the steering box. If you indeed did break some teeth, it will not be long before the broken pieces jam the box, and you will not be able to turn either direction.


Good luck

Good news

Crawled underneath tonight and loosened the lock nuts on the roadmaster. it slid back into its original position. Steering is back to normal. Tension on steering just wouldnt allow the wheel to move. Thanks to everyone who helped me here.

Once again, I have a confusion...


I can understand the steering dampener sliding out of place and preventing the front wheels from turning, but I have no clue how that would cause a free spinning steering wheel to one direction. The free spinning steering wheel is why most of us diagnosed broken teeth on the sector shaft.

Yup, lost me too.

In the original post, you said the steering wheel turned to the right fine but the wheels didn't move.

Now, according to your post, tension wouldn't allow the the wheel to turn to the right.

Glad you got it figured out.

If it was my rig I would continue to look at the components like the tie rods to see if one of the clamps loosened or something. After 50 years working on trucks and cars can't understand how the steering stabilizer would allow the wheel to turn but the tires not move.
Check the steering shaft and the spline for the steering wheels also.

There are quite a few here that feel the same. Its possible the OP misstated the problem and symptoms. But hey, he got it working....
