Default Ross Steering Box Socket

I don’t know what you guys use on the nut on the bottom of the Ross Steering box, but I have found it difficult, because even my widest screwdriver is not wide enough to turn it without messing up the slot. I took an old socket to my welder buddy and had him weld a plate onto it, so now I have a socket to use on my ratchet wrench. I hope that someone else can use this idea to simplify their process!! (Wasn't sure which area to put this in)

Scrap of flat bar stock and a vice grip, or a flat washer ground off on one edge.
I have never ran across one that didn't turn out easily though.
mostly use the tool to seat the bearings for initial adjustment.

Good homemade tools are a lifesaver. As mentioned above, a drag link socket is the tool you would need to buy if you couldn't make something. Here's what they look like ---

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
