Steering gear box
Prior to removing my steering gear box, I noticed there was a ton of play in it. What I mean is, you could turn the steering wheel shaft end and there was a lot of movement well before the pitman arm end would turn. I tried turning the adjusting screw and all that seemed to do was make for more friction, the slop was still there.
So my questions are:
1) would a rebuild kit improve the tightness of the box or could it be that the gears are worn? If so, could you point me to a kit that worked for you?
2) does anyone know of someone who rebuilds these boxes?
3) has anyone had luck buying a rebuilt box? If so, could you point me to where you got it?
4) has anyone bought a new box that will bolt right up to where the original box mounted to and with no problems with fit whatsoever?
Just trying to explore all my options.
