Question about 1981 Ford F 100
I have a 1980 ford f100 pickup truck that every so often gets extra play in the steering. It has a straight six and no power steering. I know ther is a way to adjust it I just don`t know wht it is. my father did it all the time.
There should be a bolt sticking out of the steering box with 1 or 2 nuts on the bolt. This is a thrust setting which puts load on the steering gear. Most people jack the front wheels off the ground and then back off the nut or nuts. You then turn the bolt to screw further into the steering box until you have 1/2 inch or less of play in the steering wheel. Then tighten the nut or nuts down and recheck to see if setting held.
