Ford 3000 1967 Steering box how to adjust??????

Kevin Hi

My 3000 has about 3/4 of a turn slack in the steering wheel. I have taken the side covers off around the steering box. My problems is I don't know how to adjust the box. It looks like it has adjustment on both sides.
Thanks

Kevin

James Hi,
Loosen the locknut on the side plate. Turn the adjusting screw clockwise 1/4 turn. Tighten locknut. Check slack. Loosten locknut on opposite side. Tighten adjusting screw 1/4 turn clockwise. Tighten locknut. Now drive the tractor a bit making constant left and right turns for a few minutes. Recheck slack motion and readjust as necessary with each new adjustment being smaller. If you get it too tight it will cause the steering to lock up.

Kevin thanks james will try this weekend.
