SOURCE: steering box adjustment, how

Before you do this procedure, check the rubber or universal joint connector between steering column and the steering gear. If it's worn it will cause looseness and there's your problem. Otherwise, there is a threaded screw with a lock nut on the top of steering gear. Clean threads first. Put a large flat screwdriver on the screw and loosen the lock nut. Back it off several turns. Now, screw the screw down into the gear box. Not too tight though. Your actually jamming the gears back together. Back it off a 1/2 turn or so and run it back in lightly. Hold the screwdriver and tighten the lock nut. This is usually effective.

SOURCE: have saginaw manual steering gear box on 70

There should be two adjustments on your steering box. Loosen the large ring nut at the end of the box and tighten the center adjuster to zero clearance. When re-tightening large ring nut, make sure that adjuster does not turn with it (sometimes it helps to adjust a bit looser so the adjuster ends up where you want it) You will also find another adjustment on the cover opposite the pitman arm shaft. Adjust with wheels off the ground and make sure that after adjustment is made box does not bind. If any binding is noted, back off a bit.

SOURCE: Hi, How do you adjust float in steering wheel is

WHat do you mean by "float in steering wheel"? Do you mean play at the steering wheel? If so, there probably are no adjustments on that car. Some older cars used steering boxes which could be adjusted, but Every Hyundai I've ever seen used rack and pinion steering which is usually not adjustable. You should check for play in the whole system. Have someone rock the steering wheel back and forth and look at the steering components to see if there is any play in them. If it is rack and pinion, hold your hand on the boots that are on either side while the wheel is being rocked to check for play in the inner tie rod ends. Replace any parts with play in them.

ADJUST OF STEERING BOX 1952 fORD f-1


I can't tell you the exact process but I can offer a few pointers.

A complete adjustment of a steering box is almost as complex as a lot of other gear work including the rear axle - much of the technique and technical principle is similar. A complete adjustment should not be undertaken lightly by the inexperienced. Careful examination of the components and accuracy of adjustment is essential.
Adjusting a worn steering gear can be counter-productive as the finished item can have "tight" spots resulting in over-correction of the steering by the driver with the characteristic weaving along the road.

A selection of shims will be needed, some (homemade) special tools, an accurate spring balance or a very accurate torqometer covering the range of 0 - about 20 inch-pounds and a repair manual.

There are different types of steering box - recirculating ball, worm-and-peg, worm-and-segment...
The former is the best but the most complex and is almost exclusively to be found on luxury cars and the latter type is mostly found in the vintage car parc and the worm-and-peg type is probably the most commonly found.

Mostly people only wish to adjust the "lash" of the steering gear to eliminate the free play at the steering wheel and the typically vague feel.

Many steering boxes have a screw and locknut on the cover in order to adjust the lash and preload the peg and worm, etc. but if significant wear has taken place, the steering will be too stiff in operation and the lash will still be present. For the inexperienced it is important not to use the "trial-and-error" method of adjustment but to disconnect the steering drag link and to make the adjustment while checking the preload using the prescribed method at the steering wheel.

For steering boxes without the adjusting screw it will be necessary to remove the cover and to select a shim to remove in order to adjust the lash.

As a matter of interest, excess lash is often caused or partly caused by the steering box retaining bolts loosening or the chassis weakening due to fatigue cracking or rusting. Closely inspecting the area of the mountings while an assistant loads the steering by turning the steering wheel left and right fairly rapidly by between a quarter and half a turn.

I hope this helps.

Adjustable wrench
  • Pitman arm puller
  • Torque wrench
  • Show More
    Instructions

    Park the vehicle on a level surface and make sure the front wheels are pointing straight ahead. Make sure the vehicle is in park (or in gear if you have manual transmission) and set the parking brake.

    Disconnect the pitman arm from the steering box from underneath the front of the vehicle by turning the holding bolt in a counterclockwise direction with an adjustable wrench. Place a pitman arm puller (available at auto parts stores) over the pitman arm and tighten the nut on the puller in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench until the pitman arm loosens from the steering box shaft. Remove the pitman arm and the puller.

    Open the hood and loosen the lock nut on top of the steering box from the engine compartment with an adjustable wrench in a counterclockwise direction.

    Place a torque wrench on the steering shaft and turn the wrench one complete turn. Make sure the torque reading is approximately 2 inch pounds. Tighten the adjusting nut on top of the steering box (it comes out of the center of the lock nut) in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench one half turn if the torque wrench reading is too low. Loosen the nut in a counterclockwise direction if the reading is too high.

    Rotate the steering shaft with the torque wrench again. Make adjustments to the steering box adjusting nut as described in Step 4, if needed, until the correct reading is obtained on the torque wrench.

    Make sure the steering wheel is in the straight ahead position and reattach the pitman arm to the bottom of the steering shaft on the steering box. Tighten the holding nut in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench until the pitman arm seats into place.

    Tighten the lock nut on top of the steering box with an adjustable wrench in a clockwise direction. Close the hood

    Extreme play in steering wheel. Experts say the front end parts are fine and they tightened the steering box. but still alot.


    First check the 'rag joint" in the steering shaft. If this is good repair, The steering box assembly at the frame should be replaced. although there is an adjustment known as the (over center high point steering adjustment) the box will show as adjusted until there is a load placed on the steering assembly. Excess play in the steering of dodge trucks is a very common issue. The only true way I have ever solved this issue is to replace the steering box. ( always make sure all front end parts are in good service and within normal wear prior to replacing the steering box). ****Remember there is always personal safety at risk. NEVER leave any steering issue unresolved******

    Steering is uncontrollable


    no dont mess with that steering box adjustment. you can cause it to bind inside and not steer and crash. your problem may be caused by the steering box mounting bolts coming loose, or wallowing out elongated holes in the frame, allowing it to move around when you steer. if this isnt the problem, just buy a reman gearbox. they arent too much.
