4 Bolt Steering Box Adjustment


Recommended Posts

There's a nut on the top of the steering box on a threaded stud. Raise the front wheels off the ground, slacken the nut and turn the inner stud - checking the play in the steering as you go. Once the play has been taken up and the steering moves smoothly from lock to lock - tighten the locknut - making sure the stud doesn't move as you do so..

I've never found this to work very well TBH since by the time you've adjusted the play out, you get a tight spot elsewhere in the rotation. By the time you've backed off the tight spot on the adjuster you're back to square 1 with the play.

Thanks I'll give it a go.
