    I don't know what would cause the change unless the stop screw (part
    #25-46) has loosened. You can easily adjust the maximum turn the wheels
    make each way by adjusting the two stop screws which are threaded into the
    top cover (part # 25-42) and kept in position with locknuts (part #25-45) -
    you can see them under the tie rod cover (part #34-10) and will probably
    have to remove the cover to make adjustments.
