In 45 plus years, I have never changed out a steering orbitrol on any AC tractor. Rebuild your steering cylinder.

Yep, cylinder is leaking past the piston. On my little utility tractor, I noticed if you drove very far in a straight line, you had to keep turning the steering wheel to the left to keep going straight. Put a kit in the steering cylinder and all is well.

That may be true on some tractors and not true on others. In the case of a 170-175-180-185-190-200-7000 etc, etc   one end of the steering cylinder has more volume than the other, so when constantly turning the steering wheel back and forth (field use) the steering wheel usually gains to the clockwise. Nothing wrong. Just the way it is. Some tractors have a balanced system where the steer wheel might stay the same most of the time. Again, nothing to worry about as long as it drives well and turns well.

 I used to work for a guy that had a 170 diesel. if you drove straight down a road for a mile, you had to turn the wheel to the left nearly a full turn. I believe that was the same problem, oil leaking by the piston.

Normal. Unequal displacement between each end of the cylinder.
