    Check tire pressure when the tires are cold before you do the road test. The reason I thought the "CA" would steer a little easier is that the Gemmer on th"C" is 4 turns lock to lock. Remove the retaining rings. I am considering replace it with a CA steering box, but the box I have is in bad shape also. PS: And just to clarify, do not use Corn Head grease in the steering box - it is much too heavy and does not flow.

    The screw is adjusted with the steering gear straight ahead position and tighten untill a slight drag is felt when trying to turn the steering.The studs can be turned 90 degrees, and if you have access to a grinder, hydraulic press and an electric welder, it is not too difficult to do.Forum How to adjust willys ross steering box

    To adjust the stock set screw, jack up the front end first. Turn the screw in until you feel a slight resistance turning the steering wheel back.Most of these Gemmer steering boxes have a good place where they will work smooth without extra play in the steering wheel.

    TightSteer is a simple bolt-on installation that needs only one adjustment to properly set the freeplay. 6. Replace the sec- tor shaft if it is badly worn or.Tighten the adjuster lock nut, and test the steering to verify the slight amount of drag over the center position.

    Typical parts involved with a Ross TL steering gear rebuild on a back Excessive adjustment can result in the steering gear binding.Mark the position of the Pitman arm to the cam lever shaft before you remove it.

    Hard to find Vintage part. Part Numbers Box – T 3 B. Cover – T W 8 M. Fits MB GPW CJ2A CJ3A CJ3B CJ5/6 Willys L Out.I don't really know how many thousandths they wear but if it is in one spot maybe building it up and then machining it down would be easier.

    The CA box will fit on the torque tube and work. I think you will need the steering arm as well, I have a good CA Ross steering box up at.I used new bushings and sector shaft I got from Walcks.

    If there was a market for them, a guy could make up new sectors to replace the ones worn in the middle.

    A closer adjustment than just a very slight drag will NOT correct any steering condition, but it will damage and wear the parts.

    Lastly, I don't think the 4" drop-Pitman is a great benefit for you other than for lift clearance.

    I thought I'd need a pitman arm puller, but guess all that antisleeze I put on there last time worked in my favor.

    If you align everything like shown note: no steering tube and steering clamp already installed over steering shaft then lift it back and then turn it CCW as viewed from the front of the jeep, it will just plop right into place.

    If the steering gear cannot be adjusted, it must be removed for disassembly, inspection and rebuilding.

    This allows an adjustment at mid-position of the cam where maximum wear occurs without causing a bind in the ends.

    Something else I'll caution future ross box rebuilders is to take careful note of the pitman arm orientation before you take it apart!
