1972 duster. Steering is very sloppy. Replaced both arms. The rest of the linkage seems to be ok. Would the problem be the steering gear?
Hi, Per your diagram, this is the steering box, correct? Ive heard not to turn the screw or nut to much, which do you do first please, I rebuilt my front end with a PST kit, everything new. Still has some slack in the column turning the steering wheel, Please advise when you can, Thanks.If everything else is fine. Could be the gears in the box are worn and you can turn the adjuster bolt on the steering box.

Yes, you dont want to turn it to much. It is on the steering box. You will start off by loosening the nut then when you turn the screw in the center you will adjust it by 1/8 turns at a time. Adjust it then drive it a bit then adjust drive etc. Also, make sure you shaft is solid and not the problem before adjusting. Depending on how worn out the box is you may be able to get it better but not perfect.
