also does anyone know where i can get a rebuild kit for my steering box, or does someone else have to rebuild it, and are their mods i can make to the steering box?

Re: steering box ?s

it's easy to adjust, there is a 14mm nut on top of the box, there is a flat head screw inside that 14mm nut, losen the nut, turn the screw inward, almost as far as it can go, and then retighten the locking nut.

-How many injuries or mishaps have happend after saying to you friends, "Hey, Watch this!!"

Re: steering box ?s

If you are going to adjust a steering box, and never done it before, better disconnect the drag link from the pitman arm, or hang the front wheels off the ground on jack stands. Hold the adjusting screw on top of the box and crack the nut loose. While holding the nut, turn the screw in a little at a time, and check the input shaft for resistance. Do not overtighten that screw! If it's too tight, the steering won't return to nuetral on it's own, and you risk breaking the sector gear from binding. Also, if it's too tight, it can lock up on you. Just adjust it down until all the extra play is gone, no more. While your in there, check the oil in it, they do get low after a number of years....
