Hi Terry,

Take a look at the following webpages. Hopefully they will help you 
understand the Track Rods and how the drop-arm from the Steering Column 
moves the track rods from side to side.


Basically the track rods connect the two front wheels together, keeping 
both front wheels pointing forward. Attached/Welded to the Steering 
Column is a piece of steel/arm (drop-arm) which as the steering column 
is rotated, moves the track rods. It pulls one wheel and pushes the 
other wheel.

I hope this helps.
Best of luck,
