tires and wheels turn to far in both directions then going forward at full lock or turn it wants to push tires.if tractor has a steering stops that are ajustable it would cure this problem.

Today I jacked up front axle again tie rod ends have no play checked the large nut where the inner tie rods connect to (pitman arm lack of better word) nut was tight.I checked wheel bearing movement also.All I can say is it must be in the power steering somewhere (movement) because I can move the steering wheel (engine running) about 2-3 inchs before tires move. This is only a problem if I turn to sharp
 in ether direction and this is where the steeering wheel locks up. I have to back up and slowly steer it back to straighten wheel out as I go backwards.TIRES are some where around say 35 degree angle ON A SHARP TURN. Larger trucks have a threaded bolt that is adjustable to prevent over steering lock to lock is what I call it. Im thinking of a little more toe in? What do you think?

Well i've never really noticed an issue on mine unless say I'm stuck in deep mud or snow it has sort of jammed like your saying. Otherwise in normal operation it's a non issue.   I would check the toe in for starters.   There should be a spec. On the operator manual.

Ever find a fix for this? I have a T40 that does the same thing when turning right but only one wheel. Mine is 2WD.

Not yet! Im going to try to weld a positive stop somewhere on the steering linkage (like seen on class a trucks) this will prevent linkage from turning to far.
