Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If the tractor will not turn left I suspect the parts of the steering are worn. This tractor has a sector gear that turns when you turn the steering wheel. The sector gear has a drag link connected to it that connects to the left front spindle. The left and right spindles have a tie rod connecting them so when the left spindle turns it causes the right spindle to turn also. The parts that usually wear are the steering gear (which is mounted on the steering shaft) and the sector gear. This is also, where you lubricate the steering when the tractor is hard to steer. Brush some axle grease on the teeth of the sector gear and the steering gear. When you turn the steering left and right and look for areas of play. If you any play in the parts, the bushings are likely to be worn or the teeth on the gears are worn. The parts for the tractor can be ordered from the following link.
