That's what one gets for trying to engineer something they're not supposed to using parts that aren't designed to do the job.

He mounted a front mount rack behind the cross member or a rear mount rack in front of the cross member. Only way to fix is to get the proper orientation rack, or I suppose the correct spindles front/rear steer.

Now that's kinda funny. It reminds me of a car I had in high school. After a friend rebuilt my manual transmission for me, the speedometer only worked in reverse. I took it to an AAAmco dealer who charged me for a new trans, but it never did fix the problem. I hope your friend gets it sorted out without to much trouble.

I used to drive a tractor on the farm when I was a kid that was like that. My old man and my uncle thought they would suprise my grandad with power steering on the old Cockshutt. They surprised him all right. Problem was they left it that way and I was the one who had to run it. Tell your friend not to worry. After a couple of years it becomes second nature. Wait a minute..... Thats why I didn't pass my drivers the first time....
