There is a sector shaft adjustment. Basically lift the front end. Tighten the adjustement while moving the steering where back and forth til there is resistence. Then I usually loosen it a tad something like 1/4 turn maybe more. Just to where the wheel doesn't have resistence. Then tighten the lock nut. They can be rebuilt.
