German term or phrase: gehorkt
Does this word exist?
My handwritten text seems to say:
Lenkungsventil (Lenkung hat gehorkt)
This is talking about a problem with the steering valve of a tractor.

Explanation:
"horken" does not exist, I assume they means "haken" as in: did not move freely, got stuck.
Good luck.

Explanation:
just a guess -- I don't think there is such a thing as "horken" -- could this be "gehackt", as in clogged or stuck?
