Re: Power Steering tightening
Step 1- Acquire 5/8 end wrench, stubby wrench is easier to work around, as well as a 3/16 allen wrench i believe are the sizes
Step 2- Jack up the front end of the pickup, but do not interfere with tie rods or any steering mechanisms. Make sure it turns freely each way completely.
Step 3- Find the steering box, its on the drivers side, at the end of the steering shaft, just under the powersteering pump. On top there is a allen screw with a holding nyloc nut around it, loosen the nyloc nut and tighten the allen screw a little bit at a time while holding the nyloc nut.
Step 4- Once you tighten half a turn to one turn, turn the wheel both directions completely and make sure the box doesnt bind. If your steering is as loose as mine, it will need to be tightened a ways. My screw is all the way in.
* Before you do this, remember that it may blow some Power steering fluid out as it gets tighter, so remove the lid, and put a rag in there to soak some of it up.
